Cache. Not the kind you spend. The kind squirrels use to store nuts. Your computer caches website files so sites you visit don’t take so long to load. This speeds up your ability to view the site, because your machine doesn’t need to re-download all the files. BUT, if changes have been made to a site recently, you may not see them. By clearing your cache, you delete the stored (old) files and force your machine to download a fresh copy of all the changes on the page.
How to clear your cache:
Internet Explorer: If your toolbar is visible, click Tools. Choose the very top item on the menu: Delete Browsing History. Don’t be afraid. All your favorites will stick around. Check ONLY the item that says Temporary Internet files and website files. Otherwise you’ll lose some stuff you may want to keep. Temporary Internet Files = Cache. Click the Delete button. Clear!
Firefox: If your toolbar is visible, click History. Choose Clear Recent History. Check ONLY the Cache. click Clear Now. All set.
Google Chrome: In the far upper right-hand corner, there is an icon that looks like three lines. Click that. Choose History. Click the button Clear browsing data. Check ONLY Empty the cache. Presto. Feels like you cleaned house.
