I’ve shown you how to clear the cache in most popular browsers. Today someone reminded me that I hadn’t demonstrated how to do it in Microsoft Edge.

Here’s how to it. First, open Edge. As with Internet Explorer, you just press Ctrl + Shift + Del on your keyboard. (make sure you press the shift key and not the Alt key.)

The panel below will pop out on the right.  You’ll have the choice of clearing browsing history, cookies and saved website data, cached files, and tabs that you’ve recently set or closed.

There are options to clear download history, form data, passwords, media licenses or any website permissions you’ve granted. Check which ones you want to clear and hit the Clear button.

You can also choose to always have the selected data cleared every single time you close edge.

If you are using a tablet without a keyboard tap the 3-dot icon at the top right and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.

Then scroll down about halfway down the menu and select, Choose what to clear.

You’ll get the same options shown above.
