Clear Your Cache in Internet Explorer 8

A Web browser's cache, or temporary Internet files, are stored content from pages you visit. The next time you visit that page, your browser can reference the old cached files and download only content that has changed. Removing your cache in Internet Explorer 8 is a simple process requiring changes to your Internet Safety Options. Note that deleting cached files may cause Internet Explorer 8 to run slower, as the program needs to re-download all content when viewing Web pages.


Click the "Start" button in the bottom-left corner of your computer's main screen and select "Control Panel."

Click "Network and Internet" and select "Internet Options." Press the "Safety" button.

Click "Delete Browsing History" and click the check boxes next to the various categories of stored information you want deleted.

Put a check mark in the "Preserve Favorites Website Data" to keep any cookies or files associated with the Web sites in your Internet Explorer's "Favorites" list. Click the "Delete" button to clear Internet Explorer 8's cache.
