How To: Clearing Your Cache

Most Internet browsers store files from websites to help load the page faster in the future.  These can be called Temporary Internet Files, or Cache.  For the most part these are useful, but sometimes they can cause new information not to load because the browser will revert to the stored files instead of loading the updated ones.

This can be easily remedied by clearing the cached files from your browser.
