All well so far. Over time, however, you can build up thousands of these files. Many of them may not be doing you much good, especially if they are from sites you've visited once never intending to go back.
Every once in a while, you should go in and clean these files out.
Here's how you do it:
- In Internet Explorer click Tools, and then click 'Internet Options'.
- Select the 'General' tab and find the 'Temporary Files' section half way down the page.
- Click the 'Delete Files' button and in the window that opens, check the box for 'Delete all offline content'.
- Click OK and all the files are erased.
