How to Clear a browser cache

• If you are in the process of building your web site and your web site designer is asking you to look at recently updated pages, but you do not see the changes, that is because your browser is still looking and the last page it memorizes!
You need to clear your cache which will reset the memory to zero. After you have done that and you re-visit a web page, the browser will load this page "from scratch" and shows you the latest version.

• If you are running out of disk space, or you can't stop your browser from loading an out-of-date pages or an image, or if your browser taking longer to exit, it is time to clear your browser's cache.
