Sometimes, web pages may not be as reliable as you want them to be due to a variety of glitches and bugs that cause them to not work properly. If you come across a web page that won’t show you some new changes or information, you might need to clear the cache associated with that particular website.
No Need to Reset Chrome Entirely
As many Google Chrome users probably know by now, while the browser is perhaps the best on the market at the current moment, and it offers a spectacular browsing experience, it does have its oddities every now and then. If Chrome doesn’t work properly, a quick fix most users use is emptying cache memory for the last hour, day, week, month or everything collected in the cache since forever.
However, many users seem to overlook that, if the problem is just with one page, there is no need for Chrome to be reset fully. Instead, you can just clear the cache associated with that single page. Keep reading to find out how.
How to Clear the Cache for just One Website
- Open the Developer Console. The fastest way to do this is press Ctrl + Shift + I on Windows devices or Cmd + Alt + I on Macs. An alternate way to do this is going to View > Developer > Developer Tools.
- After opening the menu, right click on the Refresh button. You can find it in the left upper corner of the browser.
- Three options will appear. Select Empty Cache and Hard Reload.
- The page will be then reloaded from scratch on the host server.
And then you’re done. It’s actually pretty simple, if you think about it. With just 4 easy to follow steps, you can get any webpage to run properly again at any time. Enjoy your browsing!
