How To Clear Your Browser Cache

 

To view Definitive Healthcare’s latest product functionality, some users may need to refresh their web browsers to eliminate cached pages. Here are instructions on how to refresh according to browser type:

Chrome: Clear Browsing Data

In Google Chrome, clearing the cache is done via the Clear browsing data area in Settings. From there, check Cached images and files (as well as anything else you want to remove) and then tap or click the CLEAR BROWSING DATA button.

Assuming you’re using a keyboard, the quickest way to Clear browsing data is via the Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut.

Without a keyboard, tap or click the Menu button (the icon with three stacked dots) followed by More tools and finally Clear browsing data….

Internet Explorer: Delete Browsing History

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, the browser that comes pre-installed on most Windows computers, clearing the cache is done from the Delete Browsing History area.

From here, check Temporary Internet files and website files and then click or tap Delete.

Like with other popular browsers, the fastest way to the Delete Browsing Historysettings is via the Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut.

Another option is via the Tools button (the gear icon), followed by Safety and then Delete browsing history….

Edge: Clear Browsing Data

In Microsoft’s Edge browser, included in their newer versions of Windows, clearing the cache is done via the Clear browsing data menu.

Once open, check Cached data and files and then tap or click Clear.

The fastest way to the Clear browsing data menu is via the Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut.

Another option is via the More button (that little icon with three horizontal dots), followed by Settings and then the Choose what to clear button under the Clear browsing data heading.

Firefox: Clear All History

In Mozilla’s Firefox browser, you clear the cache from the Clear All History area in the browser’s Options. Once there, check Cache and then tap or click Clear Now.

The Ctrl+Shift+Del keyboard shortcut is probably the fastest way to open this tool. It’s also available from Firefox’s Menu button (the three-lined “hamburger” button) via Options, then Privacy, and finally the clear your recent history link.

Safari: Empty Caches

In Apple’s Safari browser, clearing the cache is done via the Develop menu. Just tap or click Develop and then Empty Caches.

With a keyboard, clearing the cache in Safari is super easy with the Option-Command-E shortcut.

Opera: Clear Browsing Data

In Opera, clearing the cache is done via the Clear browsing data section that’s part of Settings. Once open, check Cached images and files and then click or tap Clear browsing data.

The fastest way to bring up the Clear browsing data window is via the Ctrl+Shift+Delkeyboard shortcut.

Without a keyboard, click or tap Menu, then More tools,and finally Clear browsing data.
