FAQ (Frequently Asked Question)

1) What is Browser History?

Ans: Browsing history is nothing but the history of all the websites or pages that you have visited using that browser.

2) What are Cache, and is it a good idea to erase them?

Ans: Cache is the files made by the website every time you visit it. The website stores all your data from the browser, giving you a better experience when you revisit it.

It also stores the login information. If you revisit the website, you won't need to enter the credentials again. How cool is that? But what if you clear it?

If you're thinking of deleting it. Then it's your call because some cookies might take more storage, and you want the system to run smoothly. So yeah, cookies may slow down the performance of the browser and PC, but not drastically.

But what if you clear it? What would happen? Nothing, just slow website loading, and some credential stored by the website will be erased; only this will happen. Are you ready for this?

For what? To enter the credential manually and slow experience, then it's ok.

If it takes more storage, then consider deleting it because it slows down the browser and sometimes your system.

But if it is much less, don't clear it, as it is not worth clearing.

What about my password? Don't worry. Another suggestion is to use a tool like Nordpass, which stores your password with hard encryption, so you don't have to worry again if you ever delete anything on your browser. Nordpass will suggest the password as chrome.

3) How To Clear Cache Using Shortcut Key?

Ans: There is no shortcut key to clear the cache in Microsoft Edge, but you can type in this URL edge://settings/clearBrowserData in the URL box to directly jump to the cache page to clear it.


Clearing the cache of all other data is a good idea when they're taking more storage, and you don't need that data as it's optional. But if the data is crucial for you, don't clear it; try to avoid it as much as possible.
