How Do I Clear Chrome Cache?

For best results, we suggest you use the "Clear Cache" icon on your desktop.  (See the "How Do I Clear My Cache?" page for details).

If you do not have the "Clear Cache" icon, or if you need to just clear the Chrome browser's cache, you have 2 options:

Option 1: If you are signed into chrome with your PAVCS provided Google Apps account, you will see a "Clear Cache" icon beside the address bar. Click on the icon to clear your cache.



Option 2: If you which to clear more than just the cache files (such as cookies) or you do not have the "Clear Cache" tool installed.

First open the "Clear Browing Data" window:

  1. Click on the Chrome "menu button"  to the right of the address bar, and then choose "More tools -> Clear browsing data..."
  2. (Optionally, you can use the keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+Shift+Del )

From the "Clear Browsing Data" window, you can pick and choose what things you wish to delete, and from how long back.  If you wish to just clear the cache, choose "the beginning of time" from the dropdown, and only check "Cached images and files".  Then click the "Clear Browsing Data" button.


For additional information, you can check out the Google support site article "Delete your cache and other browser data".
