How to Clear Browser's Cache

Whether you are having trouble logging in, issues with your Workspace, or any number of unusual errors, clearing the cookies and cache is one of the first solutions to try.

Clearing browser cache and cookies usually results in a better internet experience. With cookies and a full cache, browsers "remember" old versions of websites and are able to load more quickly. Usually, this is not a problem, however when websites update, remembering that old version can sometimes cause a problem. Clearing cookies and cache tells the browser to start over fresh.

We recommend clearing your browser's cache periodically and whenever you experience website issues. 

Make sure to close all tabs you are having issues with prior to taking steps below.
