Microsoft Edge is a relatively new web browser that is built on the Chromium engine as the firm is discarding its Internet Explorer for contemporary technologies to offer a better user experience. The internet is a major component of current computer usage.

Any internet browser you use will temporarily store part of the website’s data on your local computer, a process known as caching. Images and other files that the webpage serves are among the cached data, and when those data are kept locally, the cached files are served the next time you visit the same page, which loads more quickly because the browser didn’t have to download the data from the server.

Normally, clearing your system’s cache for your web browser is not necessary, but if the website isn’t functioning properly or the browser is acting strangely, you might try erasing the cache and cookies from the browser. Although cache is intended to be automatically deleted after a predetermined number of days, you can choose to manually erase cache instead.

This step-by-step tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily configure the Microsoft Edge web browser to immediately delete the system’s cache after you close it.

Step 1: Open the Microsoft Edge web browser on your computer.

Step 2: When the app opens, click on the menu or three-lines icon from the top-right corner and select “Settings” from the drop-down list.

Step 3: On the Settings page, select the “Privacy, search, and services” option from the left sidebar.

Step 4: Under the “Clear browsing data” section, click on the “Choose what to clear every time you close the browser” option.

Step 5: In there, toggle on the switch for the “Cached images and files” option.

That’s it. Once you have followed the above-mentioned step-by-step guide for the Microsoft Edge web browser on your computer, the you have successfully implemented the settings and from now onwards, whenever you close the Edge browser, all the cached images and files will be automatically deleted.
