How to clear your browser cache in Google Chrome

Updated 2 years ago by Travis R

Any website you visit is actually a composition of  hundreds or even thousands of files. Even websites which are highly optimized for speed  are likely to load a lot of files at any point to display the content in your browser.

Browsers try to do their part to speed up the loading process. The first time you visit a site, the browser will save pieces of the site, because the browser can display the files stored in its cache much faster than it can pull fresh files from a server. The next time you visit that site, the cached files will help cut down the page load time.In Chrome

  1. On your computer, open Chrome.
  2. At the top right, click on the 3 vertical dots
  3. Click More tools  Clear browsing data.
  4. At the top, choose a time range. To delete everything, select All time.
  5. Next to "Cookies and other site data" and "Cached images and files," check the boxes.
  6. Click Clear data.

You can also get there by just typing in this URL path into your browser: chrome://settings/clearBrowserData
