Browser Cache / History

Web browsers usually keep temporary copies - called a cache or history - of the web pages you visit. When you revist a cached page, the browser may display the cached copy instead of downloading the page again.

Caching speeds up web browsing but can cause problems if the page has been recently updated. In this case, you may see the old page, a page that doesn't load properly, or an error message.

Clearing the browser's cache deletes these temporary copies and forces the browser to download the latest pages. You may also want to set the browser to always check for the latest version of web pages.

Clear Cache / History

The option to clear your history or cache is located in the browser's menu or settings. Listed below are links that explain how to clear the cache for web browsers supported by Apex Learning.
