Clearing Your Web Browsing History/Cache/Temp Files
Posted by Casey Spencer on 09/24/13 11:02 PM

Many issues are resolved by clearing your web browser's cache (web browsing history). A quick way to do this is a keyboard shortcut that works on IE, Firefox, and Chrome.

Open the browser to any web page and hold CTRL and SHIFT while tapping the DELETE key. (This is NOT CTRL, ALT, DEL).

The dialog box will open to clear the browser. Set it to clear everything and click Clear Now or Delete at the bottom.

Close the browser and re-open it fresh to test what wasn't working for you previously.
