Tutorial How to clear your browser's cache

Some website data (like images) is cached when you access a website from your web browser so that you don't have to retrieve it again upon additional page views. Sometimes though you want to see changes made to a site (like DNS changes, or modifying images/text) which means you'd need to clear the browser's cache.

All examples below with the exception of Internet Explorer were completed using MacOS High Sierra

Chrome
1. From Chrome you'll go to the top left-hand side of the tab and click the 3 dots as pictured below then click "Settings":
