How to clear your browser cache


Sometimes, if you’ve got a problem with your Google+ page, you might be told in the support forum to “clear your cache”.

This is essentially the software equivalent of “turn your machine off and back on” and although there are a couple of steps to follow it is a very easy process ultimately.

On Chrome

  1. Click the Chrome menu (the three horizontal lines) on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select More Tools.
  3. Select Clear Browsing Data.
  4. Select the checkboxes for the types of information that you want to remove. To just remove the cache, leave the default box checked.
  5. Use the menu at the top to select the amount of data that you want to delete. Select beginning of time to delete everything.
  6. Click Clear browsing data.
  7. Close the screen.
