deleting temporary internet files

Post by manonthemoon2 »

I know this is a basic question and I used to do this frequently but in my mature years I've forgotten.

My OS is windows 10, where do I find the temporary files so I can get rid of them please? I do clear cookies frequently

Thanks

Shift + Control + Delete whilst using your browser.

Choose what you want to zap, and going back how far.

However for a more thorough approach install (free) CCleaner.

Or simply type %temp% in the type here to search box in the bottom left corner - Then click on the file folder and highlight the stuff you want to delete - don't forget to empty the recycle bin when you have done this. :innocent: :innocent: :innocent:
