Clear Browser Cache in Internet Explorer 11

  1. On any Internet Explorer 11 window, use the "Ctrl-Shift-Del" shortcut to bring up the Delete Browsing History pop-up window. 
  2. To delete the Web cache, uncheck all options except for "Temporary Internet Files and Website Files" and "Cookies and Website Data," then click "Delete."
  3. If you prefer setting Internet Explorer 11 to automatically delete the Web cache when exiting the browser each time, press "Alt-X," then select "Internet Options."
  4. Under the General tab, check the "Delete Browsing History on Exit" option, and then click "Apply." (Automating this process, however, also causes Internet Explorer 11 to delete data such as download history, form data, passwords, and favorite website data, in addition to the cached Web content.)
