Clearing your browser cache often is good as it helps you to:

  • Avoid using old forms
  • Allow applications to run better and faster on your computer
  • Protect your personal private information

When you visit a website, these are what your browser actually stores:

  • downloads, including older versions of forms
  • information, including the location of the site that you visited
  • files which are used to run online applications

To catch up with the newest version of an online application, you should clear your browser cache. This is because the older forms may still appear without clearing the cache. The consequence is that the existing old files can cause accessing problems when browsing through the websites.

Here are the steps to clear your cache on Internet Explorer:

1) Open Internet Explorer.

2) Click the Tools icon at the top right.
