    Every web browser stores web pages, images, cookies, and other downloaded content on the computer. This is called the browser's cache. Clearing it occasionally or regularly can protect your privacy and free up some space in your computer. Since every browser is different, the following sections will outline the steps involved in clearing the cache for several popular web browsers.

    Internet Explorer 8

    1.
    Click "Tools".
    Click "Tools".
    Once your browser is open, press ALT on keyboard,click the Tools menu.

    Delete Browsing History...
    Click on Delete Browsing History...
    3.

    "Temporary Internet Files".
    Select "Temporary Internet Files".
    4.
    Delete!
    Delete!
    Click on "Delete".
    5. Once the files have been deleted, you can dismiss the "Internet Options" dialogue by clicking the "Okay" button.

    Internet Explorer 7

    1. Once your browser is open, press ALT on keyboard (If your Menu Bar is not already visble), click the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
    2. Make sure the General tab is selected.
    3. Under "Browsing History" click "Delete"
    4. In the new window, click Delete Files in the Temporary Internet Files section. If you want, you can also opt to delete cookies and browsing history.
    5. Alternatively, clear your cache for just the current page you're visiting. Press and hold [Ctrl] on your keyboard, then Press [F5] or click on the Refresh button (square button on the toolbar with opposite-facing arrows).

    1. Once your browser is open, click the Tools menu and select Internet Options.
    2. Make sure the General tab is selected.
    3. Click Delete Files in the Temporary Internet Files section and click OK.
    4. If you want the browser to automatically clear the cache whenever you close it, click the Advanced tab. Click to check the box next to the "Empty Temporary Internet Files folder when browser is closed" option (in the section labeled "Security"). Click OK. This will delete everything except cookies.

    Go to the Privacy tab, and click Settings... (in the blue box in the image).
