  2. Problems with clearing cache with Microsoft Edge

    Hi Destin,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps to clear the cache from Edge and check if the issue persist.


    • Open Edge browser.

    • On the top right corner click on the three dots


    • Then below click on Settings

    • Under clear browsing data

    • Tap or click on Choose what to clear

    • From the list check cached data
      and files, browsing history


    • And click on clear.
    I would also suggest you to clear all temporary files from your computer and check if it helps:

    • Press Windows+R key on the keyboard.
    • Type %temp% and hit Enter.

    Try the SFC scan to resolve the issue. SFC scans the corrupted files and recover it automatically.

    To run the SFC/SCANNOW command in Windows 10:


    • Left click on Start button.

    • Right click on Command Prompt (Admin) option which will let you run
      'Run as administrator’.

    • Command Prompt Window pops up.

    • Type: SFC /SCANNOW

    You can also follow the link below for reference:

    Can you list what are the options you see when you go to Menu-->Web (Internet) ? Though I have a Nokia X3 ( also an S40) and Vodafone, India connection the last option there is Clear the Cache... If not then did you check under 'Web Settings' ?
