How to Clear the Cache and Cookies in Your Web Browser 

Why Clear Cache and Cookies?
Clearing the Cache and Cookies from a web browser is an essential first step for almost any troubleshooting for internet browsing. For example, sometimes the “cache” can cause problems when websites are updated and developed, as files saved in the cache may conflict with what’s coded. Clearing Cache and Cookies can cure problems loading updated pages in your browsers.

If you have issues connecting to the Tech Group online meeting, clear the Cache and Cookies.

Shortcut to Clear the Cache and Cookies for Most Browsers
If you use Internet Explorer, Edge, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox. You can quickly clear the cache with a keyboard shortcut.
While in your browser, press Ctrl + Shift + Delete simultaneously on the keyboard to open the appropriate window.

Note: It is usually only necessary to clear “Browser history” and “Cached images and files.” You can uncheck the other items. Likewise, removing Cookies or any other things is generally not essential.

I do recommend selecting “All Time” as the Time Range.
