All Internet users have to clear the cache from time to time, or delete temporary files from a special storage in which the browser saves copies of the web pages they visit. He does this so that when the user returns to previously viewed pages, they are loaded not from the server, but from the cache.
Thus, the cache offloads the network and allows the browser to provide the client with the necessary information faster.
However, temporary files containing a lot of graphics gradually accumulate in storage, taking up hard disk space and memory, resulting in slower computer performance and incorrect display of web pages. Therefore, clearing the cache should be carried out regularly, especially when actively viewing and downloading videos, music or photos.
The cleaning process is very simple and takes no time at all. The user does not have access to the folder with temporary files through the computer, so the history is deleted through the browser. In all browsers, it starts with the settings menu and has minor differences.
