Have you ever heard the term â€śclearing the cacheâ€ť or â€śremove your temporary filesâ€ť? Have you also wondered why you should do this? Here at Job Mail we want to help educate our users and in turn make not only their online experience better but also clear your computer of unnecessary junk and to make sure that you get to view the most of whatever you are seeking.
Temporary internet files are downloaded to your computer every time a website is accessed through a web browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, Firefox).Â This happens for example, when a certain website is accessed and contains pictures, those pictures are downloaded onto your PC. The same goes for any other data that you receive while browsing.
If you donâ€™t clear these files from time to time, it will cause your computer to become slow, as it is using up your RAM/hard drive to display this page. It will also make some pages that you are trying to access slow or wonâ€™t even open it up! For instance, when using Google Docs or Calendar and your cache is full, it will not open the page.
Here are the four main browsers that users are using and how to clear you cache/temporary internet files on them:
We hope that this gives you a clear understanding on temporary internet files and on how to clear these files.
