What is browser cache?

Your cache is where your web browser saves tiny files onto your computer when you visit a site on the internet. This means the next time you view that site, it’ll load faster. However, sometimes your web browser will load old content that was cached (saved) rather than the new files you want to view. Clearing your cache improves your browser function and allows sites to display content from the ground up.

This guide explains how to clear your cache in recent versions of our supported browsers. If you contact Filecamp Support about certain issues, we may recommend this process as a solution.
