Unfortunately, how you clear your cache varies depending on your operating system and your browser.And while we can’t cover every variation, we’ve provided a number of videos that hopefully match the browser and operating system you’re using.

In the same way that your web browser has a cache of recent web pages, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may be doing some caching on your behalf.

In some (rare) cases, even though you are using shift-refresh to get new data from a webpage, the pages still seem to be old.

In your computer’s case, your web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) stores versions of websites as you view them and shows them to you in the future instead of downloading the newest version.

Your browser does this because using cache allows the page to load much faster since it’s already stored on your computer.

Depending on your operating system all you need to do is the following key combination: Windows: ctrl F5 Mac/Apple: Apple R or command R Linux: F5 Internet cache can threat to your privacy as everyone who has access to your computer can see some personal information by simply opening the cache folder.

Also when the cache fills up, performance can slow down and your hard drive may run out of space.

Before watching it’s worth noting that the layout, buttons and text in browsers change over time.

It’s possible our video won’t match exactly what you see on your screen, but they’ll hopefully be pretty close.

On this site you can find step by step guides for Chrome, Firefox 3, Firefox 2, Internet Explorer 8, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 6, Safari and more on how to refresh your cache.
