How to clear cache and cookies in Edge

Why Clear Cache and Cookies?

Clearing the cache and cookies from a web browser is an important first-step for almost any troubleshooting for internet browsing. The 'cache' is a tool used by your internet browser to speed up the page loading process. However, sometimes it can cause a problem when websites are updated and developed as files saved in the cache may conflict with what's actually coded into the website. Clearing cache and cookies is a way we can be sure that any issues you may come across are actually something wrong with the website, rather than inconsistencies caused by using different browsers.

Steps for clearing Cache and Cookies for the Academy:

To get started, click on the Settings and more button (three dots) in the upper-right corner of the browser’s toolbar. Then scroll down and click on Settings from the menu.

On the Settings page, click on Cookies and site permissions in the left pane.

Next, on the right-hand side, click the Manage and delete cookies and site data option.

Now, under the Cookies and data stored section, click on See all cookies and site data from the list of options.

You will now have a full list of all the stored cookies in your browser. Scrolling through all of them to find the site you’re looking for would be quite tedious. Instead, search for the specific site’s cookies you want to clear in the search field in the top right corner of the page. In this example, we’re looking for cookies related to Amazon.


Expand the specific cookie(s) you want to clear and click the trashcan icon next to the cookies list. Alternatively, you can click the Remove all shown button to clear all the specifically related cookies.

When you click the Remove all shown button, you’ll need to verify you want to remove the cookies and stored data by clicking the Clear button.

Summing Up

That’s all there is to it. Now the specific cookies you want removed will be cleared out. This can also come in handy when a certain site isn’t working correctly.
