NETSCAPE CACHE - Version
To keep Netscape Navigator running at it's best, make sure to periodically
clean the disk & memory cache. The cache stores graphics of sites you browse
on the Internet, so the next time you revisit the site it will load the page
much faster. But after extensive browsing the cache will become plugged, causing
problems with browsing and e-mail.
To clean the disk & memory cache, follow these steps:
- Open Netscape Navigator.
- Click on the Options menu (at the top of the Netscape's browser
window), and select Network Preferences.
- In the Network Preference window, select the Cache tab.
- Click on the Clear Memory Cache Now button. Netscape will bring up
a window indicating this will remove all the files currently in your memory
cache. Click on the OK button.
- Next, click on the Clear Disk Cache Now button. Netscape will bring
up a window indicating this will remove all the files currently in your disk
cache. Click on the OK button.
- At the bottom of the Cache screen, click on the OK button. The
Cache tab window will take a couple of seconds to disappear. Once it has
cleared, go to the File menu at the top of the browser window, and select
close (this will refresh Netscape).
