How to clear the cache in any browser on any platform

Clearing your cache is one of the most straightforward all-purpose fixes, along with rebooting your device. It can fix lags, random freezes, or crashes, particularly in Windows, and it will free up storage space. Many people never do it, so we’ll show you how to clear all your caches.
