How to Clear Cache (PC/Mac)?

Each time you re-visit a website, your cache (temporary internet files) is supposed to to analyze if it has changed so that it can serve you the most up-to-date pages. This doesn't always work; sometimes the cache will load its older stored page instead, so you may not always get the newest version.

Here are the steps to clear cache for the most well-known browsers for PC/Mac:

For Google Chrome:
1. On your computer, open Chrome.
2. At the top right, click More (Three dots).
3. Click Advanced Privacy and Security.
4. Click Clear Browsing Data
5. At the top, choose a time range. To delete everything, select All time.
6. Next to "Cookies and other site data" and "Cached images and files," check the boxes.
7. Click Clear data.
