Clearing cookies: Google Chrome

Why do I want to clear my browser's cookies?

Over time, your browser will accumulate more and more cookies. This can take up space on your computer, and sometimes can result in a web site using old information. Clearing cookies is a common troubleshooting method, which effectively gives you a fresh start with your browser(s).

 

How do I clear cookies for Google Chrome?

  • First of all, open Google Chrome! Once you've got Chrome opened, press ctrl,shift and delete at the same time - it's very similar to the ctrl-alt-del command.
  • This will open a new tab in your browser with a list of options. In this instance we're going to clear just the cookies, so select the option Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data. Ensure the drop-down box is selected on the beginning of time

  • Click the button Clear browsing data, and you're all done.
