Suffering low disk space issue? Over time, there will be a lot of files accumulate in system caches, which can cause some issues for your computer. Clearing cache can not only make your PC run smoothly but also increase some free space. So I am writing here on how to clear cache on Windows 10.


Clear Browser’s Cache:


(1)Google Chrome


Go to the three-dot menu at the upper-right of Chrome to select "history" --> "Clear browsing data" --> "Cached images and files".

(2)Internet Explorer


Like Google, Microsoft is also keeping some of your history online. Choose “Clear all history” on the upper right corner, and then check the item of “Cached data and files”.
