Clearing Chrome Browser Cache

The temporary Internet files in Chrome, sometimes called the cache, are the copies of text, images, and other data from recently viewed websites that are stored on your hard drive.

As far as troubleshooting a problem goes, deleting temporary Internet files is helpful when a web page won't load but you're pretty confident that the site works.

Deleting the temporary Internet files in Chrome is safe, and you can choose options to ensure that stored features like cookies and passwords won't be removed.

Follow the easy steps below to clear the cache in Chrome:

     1. Open Chrome.

     2. Go to the right corner of the top toolbar, and click the “Customize and control Google
         Chrome” icon, which is in the shape of three horizontal bars.

     3. A dialog box will open.  Select History

     4. The History screen will open. Select Clear browsing data... 

     5. Choose how far back you want to go when deleting data, e.g., “the past hour,” “the
         beginning of time,” etc. 

     6. Uncheck all options except "Cached images and files," and click Clear browsing data
