Clearing your Internet cache
Posted by Noah Strehl on 16 February 2009 12:28 AM
When viewing a website, it is saved to your computer in the cacheÂ so that it can be loaded faster, if you were to return to it. The problem thatÂ can beÂ created is if changes are madeÂ to your website (loaded a new home page, or changing whereÂ the domain is pointed)Â sometimes the website doesn't show the changes. This may be because the website is being loaded from the cache. Here is how to clear the cache so that the web page will be loaded from the server, and not your computer. All these are done with the browser open.
In the toolbar at the top of the screen click on Tools, it is next to Help. Go down to "Clear Private Data" and click on it. Make sure Cache is selected with a check mark and all other boxes are not selected. Click Clear Private Data Now and the data is cleared.
Internet Explorer 7
Clcik Tools, selecting Internet Options. Under the General tab next to Browsing HistoryÂ click Delete.Â After the new window opens, click Delete Files in the Temporary Internet Files section.
Click on the Safari menu, selecting Empty Cache. Confirm by clicking Empty in the window that pops up.
In the tool bar click onÂ Tools and select Delete Private Data from the menu. Click on Details. Remove the check marks on the items you do not want to delete. Leave cache checked. Press the Delete button.
