How to Clear Chrome’s Cache and Cookies

Before we begin, these instructions are for clearing Chrome’s cache and cookies on your Windows 10, 11, or Mac computer. We have separate guides for iPhone, iPad, and Android.

To clear the cache and cookies in Chrome, you’ll need to access the browser’s Settings menu. There are three different ways you can get here.

The first way is to click the three vertical dots icon in the top-right corner of the screen, hovering over “More Tools,” and then selecting “Clear Browsing Data.”

You may have noticed from the above image that there is a shortcut key you can use. To go straight to the page to clear your cache and cookies, simultaneously press down on the Ctrl + Shift + Delete keys.

Alternatively, you can enter chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in the address bar.

Regardless of which method of navigation you choose, you should now be at the “Clear Browsing Data” window.

The first thing you’ll do here is select the time range for deleting the cookies and cache. Click the arrow in the box next to “Time Range” to expand the menu and then select the desired time range. This is set to “All Time” by default.

Next, check the boxes next to “Cookies And Other Site Data” and “Cached Images And Files.” You can also clear your browsing history here, too.

Once the boxes are checked, select the “Clear Data” button.

After a few moments, your cache and cookies will be cleared.
