How to Clear Your Cache on Any Browser

If you are on a desktop computer…

Chrome

Google Chrome

  1. Click the three-dot menu at the top right of Chrome
  2. Select More tools > Clear browsing data
  3. This will open a dialog box to delete your browsing history, as well as your download history (it won’t delete the downloaded files), cookies, cached images and files, saved passwords, and more. You can delete only the info from the last hour, day, week, month, or all of it from “the beginning of time.”
