Internet Browsers

Associated Roles:
  • Students
  • Faculty / Staff

Every time you visit a website, or download something from the internet, your computer starts to collect files and settings that may later cause performance issues, or cause the browser to produce errors. Learning how to perform basic tasks in maintaining your browser can really help to speed it up, and increasing the reliability of your web browsing. 

Clearing the Cache

One of the most common and effective ways to troubleshoot your internet browser is to clear the cache, or temporary data that is stored inside the program. Clearing the Cache is often the first step an OIT Technician will take if you are having difficulties accessing a particular website. Each browser has a different way of completing this task.
