    Empty all Chrome cache

    If you want to learn how to clear the Chrome cache on your computer, the first step you need to take is to position yourself in front of your multimedia station, start the web browser, click on the icon Menu located at the top right (i three dots) and will select the voice Settings from the menu that appears. In the tab that opens, click on the entry first Show advanced settings… which is at the bottom of the page and then on the button Clear browsing data ... that you find attached to the section Privacy.



    Once this is done, put the check mark only next to the item Cached images and files then choose the option all give menu to tendin Delete the following items from: and press pulsating Clear browsing data but I will complete the operation.

    If you don't want to clear all the cache but only the most recently stored data, expand the drop-down menu Delete the following items from: and select, based on your needs, one of the other available options: last hourlast daylast week or last four weeks

    Two other methods - very fast - to reach the screen by which to clear the Chrome cache are the following:

    • Click on the button Menu always located in the upper right part of the navigation program window and select the item Other tools and then that Clear browsing data ... give the menu to compare;
    • Press the key combination Ctrl+Shift+Canc or cmd+shift+backspace your Mac.

    In addition to the cache, following the same path seen above, it is also possible to delete the history (i.e. the list of sites visited), the list of downloads, cookies, passwords saved in the program, the data that are automatically entered for filling in forms and information of applications installed in Chrome.



    To do this, just put the check mark next to the appropriate options, select the time span of the data to be deleted from the drop-down menu at the top right and click on the button Clear browsing data located at the bottom right. Easier than that?

    Clear a single site's Chrome cache

    In addition to, as I have indicated to you in the claiming lines, you can also clear the Chrome cache by acting on a single website. It is a very easy operation.

    All you have to do is visit the site in question, click the button Menu located in the upper right part of the Chrome window, move the cursor to the item Other tools, select the option Developer tools and hold down the left mouse or trackpad button on the icon reload page (The circular arrow top left) in the browser toolbar.

    Within a few seconds you will see another small menu appear. From the latter, select the item Clear the cache and reload manually and Chrome will reload the site by automatically clearing its cache.

    Clear the Chrome cache on a scheduled basis

    Would you like to clear the Chrome cache automatically every time you open the browser? Yup? Then I suggest you resort to using the free extension Click & Clean which was designed to add this particular feature to Google Chrome. In addition to allowing you to do this, it allows you to delete the history, cookies, plug-in data and all information that in some way may represent a risk to the user's privacy.


    To install Click & Clean on your computer, connected to the Chrome Web Store page that hosts the extension, press the button Add twice in a row and that's it. Once this is done, a short procedure will start for the initial configuration of the add-on: complete it by clicking on the button Skip, to refuse the installation of a small app that serves to test the degree of privacy of the browser and by closing the browser tab.


    Now click on the Click & Clean icon that appeared in the Chrome toolbar at the top right and select the item options from the box that appears. In the window that opens, leave the check mark only next to the options Clear your cache ed Delete personal data when Chrome closes (if you want to automatically delete other data also leave the check mark next to the other items), close the extension configuration panel and the settings will be saved.

    Once these steps are done, every time you open rare Chrome, your browser cache will be cleared without you having to do anything. Convenient!
