Microsoft Edge for PC/Mac (Desktop)

Clearing the cache in the Microsoft Edge browser on a PC is a straightforward process. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open Edge:
    Launch the Microsoft Edge browser on your PC.
  2. Access Settings:
    In the top-right corner of the browser window, click on the three horizontal dots to open the menu.
  3. Go to Settings:
    From the menu, select “Settings.” Can also be accessed directly at: edge://settings/privacy
  4. Privacy, Search, and Services:
    In the left sidebar, click on “Privacy, search, and services.”
  5. Clear Browsing Data:
    Under the “Clear browsing data” section, click on the “Choose what to clear” button.
  6. Choose Data to Clear:
    In the pop-up window, make sure the box next to “Cached images and files” is checked. You can also choose to clear other data like browsing history and cookies if desired.
  7. Clear Data:
    Click on the “Clear” button to confirm and initiate the cache-clearing process.
  8. Restart Edge (Optional):
    After clearing the cache, you can choose to close and restart the Edge browser for the changes to take effect. This step is optional but can help ensure a clean start.

Please note that clearing the cache will log you out of websites, and you may lose some browsing history. The exact menu options may vary slightly depending on the version of Microsoft Edge you’re using, but the general steps should be similar. If you have trouble finding the specific settings, you can refer to the Microsoft Edge Help documentation or check the settings menu in Edge for guidance.
