HS sometimes ? When we click on an item and close it converts text to red, but like right now, the feature is not working. Thanks, George

If you clear your browser's cache, intentionally or otherwise, your browser ...

... no longer knows which links you've visited, because that information is stored in your computer rather than by this (or any other) website.

A cache

March 8 2012, 3:56 PM 

Basically, in a nutshell, it's a portion of memory specifically tasked with storing information from websites. This allows the computer to load the page faster, since it already has said information (like the banner for hyperscale) locally. Technology sort of makes it redundant, as it is easier to download, due to high speed internet. Back in the days of dialup, this MATTERED.

Being that this space is only so big, it gets filled up fast, and begins to cause problems. You don't see the current page. You don't see new messages, the page won't load (but a few).

Clearing this out is easy- this is if you are using internet explorer. Up above, you will see a toolbar.
Click on TOOLS
Make sure you are on the GENERAL Tab (you should be, it is the default location)
Under BROWSING HISTORY, make sure the checkbox for "delete browsing history on exit" is checked- if it is not there, don't worry about it.
Click on DELETE
You can safely delete Temporary internet files, cookies, history, with very little notice at all. I would advise not deleting stored passwords, unless you know what they are, or how to retrieve them.

This is for Internet Explorer 8, IE7 and IE9 may look a little different, but should have pretty much the same feel.

As always, if you want to learn more, there are plenty of good books to get started with, "Internet for Dummies" is filled with all sorts of good info and tips and tricks.

Under BROWSING HISTORY, make sure the checkbox for "delete browsing history on exit" is checked- if it is not there, don't worry about it.
What does this do?

it removes evidence!!!!

let's say you are looking at some sites that you would rather nobody else knew about..... (nuff said)
let's say you would rather NOT have a list of ALL the sites you ever went to ready and available, or you just want to keep useless junk off your hard drive.
every time you close Internet explorer, it will automatically remove the sites you have just finished. Sort of like in outlook, when you tell it to empty the recycle bin when you close outlook.

Jim's answer is a good one, but the disadvantage of clearing your cache is that ...

March 9 2012, 12:08 AM 

... you then lose the color change in links of those Network54 posts (for example) that you've read already. Therefore, the choice between clearing or not clearing one's cache at the end of each session is a decision that should be made on the basis of one's personal situation and preferences after the associated issues are understood.
