Have you ever phoned your website developer to ask why you cannot see the change the developer states they made and they are adamant it has been done?

This is where web cache becomes a issue when web developers make changes to your website and you would like to see it. So we have already covered what browser cache is and what the purpose of it is in our post What Is Web Cache Data. So now how do you go about refreshing it to see the latest changes to a website?

To perform a force refresh in your browser you simply need to select the following key combinations. Windows users can select ctrl + f5, Mac users can select command + R and Linux users can select F5.

Your browser cache will be cleared and you will now see the latest version of your website appear.
