Opera for PC/Mac (Desktop)

Clearing the cache in the Opera browser on a PC is a relatively simple process. Here’s a general guide on how to clear the cache in Opera:

  1. Open Opera:
    Launch the Opera browser on your PC.
  2. Access Settings:
    In the top-left corner of the browser window, click on the red “Opera” button to open the menu.
  3. Go to Settings:
    From the menu, hover over “Settings” and then click on “Advanced.”
  4. Privacy & Security:
    In the left sidebar, click on “Privacy & Security.”
  5. Clear Browsing Data:
    Scroll down to the “Privacy” section, and under “Clear browsing data,” click on “Clear browsing data.”
  6. Choose Data to Clear:
    In the pop-up window, ensure 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. Select Time Range (Optional):
    Choose the time range for which you want to clear the cache. If you want to clear the entire cache, select “All time.”
  8. Clear Data:
    Click on the “Clear data” button to confirm and initiate the cache-clearing process.
  9. Restart Opera (Optional):
    After clearing the cache, you can choose to close and restart the Opera 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 Opera you’re using, but the general steps should be similar. If you have trouble finding the specific settings, you can refer to the Opera Help documentation or check the settings menu in Opera for guidance.
