How to Clear Edge Cache

You are using Microsoft Edge, and viewing a particular web page, you notice that the information on it is never updated. Maybe it’s a news blog, and have you been seeing the same news for days? Have you tried to access the site with another web browser, and with the latter, are you able to view the new content? Well! Most likely, this small glitch is caused by Microsoft’s browser cache that keeps loading old content. To solve everything then, clear the Edge cache with a straightforward procedure.

The cache of a web browser is nothing more than a folder in which the web pages you visit are saved. Thanks to the cache, when you access a Web resource that you have already visited, it will be displayed more quickly since it will no longer have to be downloaded from the server since it is already on your PC. However, this feature might cause minor problems, especially when you access websites that update their pages very often. In fact, as written at the beginning, in these cases, you may see obsolete content.

Fortunately, by clearing your browser cache, you’ll be able to fix the problem in no time. Quiet! Emptying the Edge cache is really, very simple. If you don’t know how to do it, just read the following paragraphs to find all the information you need.
