Clearing Browser Cache

Web browsers store downloaded content from webpages you visit in order to expedite access to sites by loading data from the cache instead of directly downloading it. Periodically clearing the browser's cache and cookies can improve the browser's performance. With web applications like PeopleSoft, it is extremely useful to clear the cache when your access changes or there is a significant system update or refresh. This will allow PeopleSoft to get the latest settings from the database. To clear the cache, please find the instructions below for the browser you use.
