Your internet browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera, etc.) maintains stored copies of web pages and pictures in order to speed up how fast web pages are displayed to you. This is called a browser cache and the files contained are referred to as cached files.

The browser cache allows you to speed along the internet quicker. However, sometimes the browser cache can cause problems when it becomes too big or corrupt. Or, your browser may not download the most current version of a web page from the website, instead showing you an older cached version.

To solve these problems, it is occasionally necessary to clear the browser cache. The process for each browser is a bit different, but the process is similar. Instruction to clear the browser cache for the three most-common browsers are listed here.

Internet Explorer Version 11

Firefox Version 28

Chrome Version 34

Remember that if you have a different version of the browser or any other browser, your process may be different.
