How To Clear Cache In Google Chrome
Web browsers, by design, will store a lot of information — image data, form data, etcetera — for each website you visit, in order to load them faster on return trips, in the form of the cache. It’s handy if you're in a hurry, but this stockpile of data can use up a bit more storage space than you might want. Luckily, clearing it is fairly simple.
Once you have Chrome open on your PC, click the “More Tools” option in the top-left corner of the screen — or Chrome if you're using a Mac — then click “Clear Browsing Data.” Under “Basic,” you can check or uncheck “Browsing History” along with “Cookies and Other Data” and “Cached Images and Files,” with all of the checked options being deleted once you start.
When you've decided what you want to delete, you can select the timeframe you want to remove: the past hour, 24 hours, seven days, four weeks, or All Time, then click Clear Data and give Chrome time to finish, and you're done. Clearing the cache will cause websites to load a bit slower the first time you visit them, and it may make you log in to certain websites again.
