Temporary Internet Folder - How To Clear

 

 

Article by Marc Liron - Microsoft MVP (Windows Desktop Experience)

 



Internet Explorer 6 stores all the web pages and images that you view whilst online...

If you wish to clear the Temporary Internet Folder from all these HTML, JPG, GIF, TXT etc.. files then you have 2 main options available to you.

You can either manually remove the files when you remember to, or you can also set an option so that it cleans out the files on closing Internet Explorer. (There are also 3rd party software products that will do the job...)

 

How To Tell Internet Explorer To Clean Out The Temporary Internet Folder On Closing:

You can configure Internet Explorer to remove all the files it keeps a copy of whilst you are surfing the Internet by following these simple instructions:

1. In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

2. Click the Advanced tab.

3. Under Security, locate Empty Temporary Internet Files.

4. Select the check box for the Empty Temporary Internet Files.

5. Click the Apply button.

...and that's it.



How To Manually Clean Out The Temporary Internet Folder On An Adhoc Basis:

Internet Explorer allows you to manually remove files stored in its temporary internet folder, follow these instructions to perform this task manually:

1. On the Tools menu in Internet Explorer, click Internet Options.

2. Click the General tab.

3. Under Temporary Internet Files , click Delete Files.

4. In the new window that appears click OK.

...the folder will now be cleaned, please note that this can take a few moments to complete.

NB - You can also remove the "Cookies" stored in the Temporary Internet Folder but some of them may be ones you wish to keep so I will cover this in another article.

 

 

3rd Party Privacy Software:
