Quick Tip: Delete Temporary Internet Files / Clear Cache – Shortcut Keys in IE8

Monday, April 5th, 2010 | Business | 1 Comment

Web developers have to refresh browser caches a lot (if we even have our browsers set to cache) — if you want a quick way to pull up the “Delete Browsing History” screen in IE8:

Ctrl+Shift+Delete

It’ll pop up, click “Temporary Internet Files” and then “Delete”.  It will stop you from having to click into the menus up top.

Bonus – Force IE8 to “Always Refresh from Server”

If you’re in IE8 and are constantly refreshing the cache, why not temporarily force refreshed content:

Hit F12 (for the Developer Tools)
Click on menu item “Cache” and click on “Always Refresh from Server

You can look back in there to see a checkbox next to it, so you know it’s on.  It will let you always refresh from the server for just the current browser session (very useful).
