Clearing Browser Cache

The browser cache is a temporary storage location on a computer for files downloaded by a browser to display websites. Some of the files a browser will store are:

  • Images
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Cookies

Sometimes, especially when testing for changes on a store, the browser will display content from its cache storage rather than retrieve a new version of the asset files from the server. In these cases, it may be necessary to clear the browser cache.

If MageMojo Support recommends clearing your browser cache, refer to these instructions.

Please note that browser are often updated. These instructions may be slightly different as updates occur.
