Google Chrome like any other web browser caches images, files, and cookies from every website you visit to speed up the loading process and offer a better browsing experience when you return to the same site.
Although caching data can help to speed up the web navigating experience, over time the cache data can break and prevent websites from loading correctly on Chrome. For example, you may open a site and the page may appear broken, it won’t load, or you may not be able to sign in to a specific service. In these cases clearing the cache may solve the rendering problems.
This guide will teach you the steps to clear the cache and cookies on Google Chrome whether you use Windows 11 or another version like Windows 10.
Clear cache data on Chrome
To delete cache, cookies, passwords, history, and other data from Chrome, use these steps:
Open Google Chrome.
Click the Customize and control (three-dotted) button in the top-right corner and select the Settings option.
Click on Privacy and security.
Under the “Privacy and security” section, click the “Clear browsing data” tab.
Select the “All time” option from the “Time range” setting.
Check the cache data to clear, including the “Browsing history,” “Cookies and other site data,” and “Cached images and files” options.
Quick tip: You can also clear a number of other browsing data, such as passwords, autofill, site settings, and hosted data from the “Advanced” tab.
Click the Clear data button.
Once you complete the steps, Google Chrome will clear the chance data, allowing websites to load correctly and faster than before after reaching the information. You may also need to sign in again to some of your services as a result of deleting the cookies and other site settings stored in the browser.
