Temporary Internet Files

by Barbara J. Feldman on January 13, 2004

Temporary Internet files are local storage of web pages that you’ve visited which are used to speed loading them a second time. Deleting them periodically is a good habit, as it saves disk space and prevents a variety of small annoyances that can be caused by a full cache. In Internet Explorer, delete them by selecting Tools/Internet Options/Temporary Internet Files/Delete Files. In Netscape, go to Edit/Preferences/Advanced/Cache/Clear Disk Cache.
