Clear Browser Cache (Google Chrome)

Clearing Browser Cache in Google Chrome

Many customers have had issues with their code not updating after saving changes. This is caused by browser caching. I’ll show you how to fix the issue and see the changes live after you make new changes.

1. Click the 12%20PM in the top right corner

2. Hover over “More tools” and then click "Clear browsing data…"

3. Now, keep the “Browsing history” and “Cookies and other site data” checkboxes unchecked and click "Clear data"

Now, just wait a few seconds for Chrome to clear the cached files.

Finally, visit your site and the code show be updated. You’ll have to complete this step every time you change your files, such as CSS and JS files. :slight_smile:


Quick tip: When you are testing your app or website, sometimes you will need to clear the cache to frequently. Use CTRL + SHIFT + R to hard reload a page. This clears the cache automatically and reloads the page.

Working in both chrome and firefox.

Happy web mastering :slight_smile:
