Get More Cache

Friday, March 31st, 2006 by | Filed Under: System Tune-Up Help

Is there any way I can change the size of my cache?

Yes, there is. If you have a good amount of available space on your hard drive and you surf the Internet all the time, you may want to consider increasing the size of your cache. By making your cache bigger, you will be able to access recently visited Web sites quicker.

If you’re interested, open up Internet Explorer and go to Tools, Internet Options. Now click on the Settings button under the Temporary Internet Files area. You can then see where your cache is presently set, so to make the amount of disk space you want your cache to use larger, use the arrow slider to move it up. When you are sliding, the little box to the right will tell you how much space you’re using, in terms of MB. Once you have it set where you would like it, click OK twice.

So, if you ever want to decrease the space, follow the same directions to make it smaller. Also, if you would ever like to clear your cache out, go to Tools, Internet Options and click on the Delete Files button under Temporary Internet Files. Click OK and your cache history will be gone.

Remember that this tip is mostly for those of you who have some extra disk space and would like to access Web sites faster. If neither of those pertain to you, you may not want to even mess with your cache. That will be up to you.
