How to Clear the Cache with Microsoft Edge

  1. Open Microsoft Edge: Launch the Microsoft Edge web browser on your computer.

  2. Access Settings: Click on the three horizontal dots in the top-right corner of the browser window. This is the "More" button. A dropdown menu will appear.

  3. Search for Setting: In the dropdown menu, you'll see a search bar labeled "Search settings." Type "Clear browsing data" into this search bar and press Enter.

  4. Select Clear Browsing Data Option: The search results will display a setting related to clearing browsing data. Click on the "Choose what to clear" or "Clear browsing data" option. This will take you to the relevant settings page.

  5. Clear Cache: On the "Choose what to clear" or "Clear browsing data" page, you'll see a list of data types that you can clear. Make sure the "Cached images and files" option is checked. Uncheck all other options to only clear the cache.

  6. Clear Data: Once you've selected "Cached images and files," click the "Clear" or "Clear now" button. Edge will start clearing the cache.

  7. Wait for Clearing: Edge will begin the process of clearing the cache. This might take a moment, especially if you have a lot of cached content.

  8. Completion: Once the cache is cleared, you'll see a confirmation message indicating that the process is complete.

  9. Close Settings: Close the settings tab or window that you opened earlier.

  10. Restart Edge: To ensure that the changes take effect, it's a good idea to close and reopen Microsoft Edge after clearing the cache.

That's it! You've successfully cleared the cache in Microsoft Edge. This process can help improve browser performance and resolve issues related to cached content.
