If your computer is running slow, one of theproblems could be that your hard drive is filling up. Hi, I’m Charles Stewart Jr, andI’m going to teach you how to delete your cookies and clean up your computer. One ofthe easiest things to do is delete cookies. And what cookies are, they’re little piecesof information that are stored in your computer so when you go to a website, that websiteknows that you’ve visited it before, and it like helps keep track of you as an individual,so they can tailor ads or you know specific sayings you set up on your computer, whichis great if they’re sites that you go to a lot, but if you just go to a site once, it’llstore that information and over a couple years
or even over six months of not deleting cookies,you’ll build up a lot of information and that starts to hog space on your computer. Andone of the big things with your computer is if you have a hard drive, as it starts tofill up, your computer takes longer to find things, so that slows down your computer.So to delete cookies is fairly easy. If you’re running Internet Explorer, you just go upto tools, and then go to Internet Options, and then right on the front page there’s abutton that says delete cookies. And you’ll just go over here, delete cookies, and itsays delete all cookies in a temporary internet folder, and you hit okay. And then that’sit for the cookies part of it The next thing
you want to do is clean up, as your computerstarts to, over time, it’ll in other areas, start accumulating data that you don’t needanymore. So you’ll want to go to the hit the start button and go to my all programs,and then go to accessories, and then you’re going to look at system tools, and you’llsee something that says disk cleanup. You’ll want to click on that, and sometimes it’lltake a couple minutes as it’s scanning your hard drive for information. Depending on howfull your hard drive, it could take fifteen minutes or longer. Since I don’t really havea lot on here, it did it fairly quick. Now that it’s showing you that I’ve got this muchin temporary internet files and how much is
in my recycle bin. And it’s basically lettingyou know these are files that you can get rid of to clean up your computer, and thenyou just hit okay, and it’ll ask you are you sure you want to do this and you say yes.And then it’s going to go through and delete all those files and then that’ll help cleanup some of the stuff that you don’t need anymore. And then another thing to do is just go throughit yourself and look through the computer and find files or folders or things you’vedownloaded that you might not need anymore and delete those. And if you do enough ofthat, you should start to notice you should start to notice an increase in performanceon your computer. And another great thing
to do is just add more RAM ’cause that couldspeed up your computer as well. And that’s how to delete cookies and clean up your computer.
How to Clear Cache and Delete Cookies on Google Chrome
Hi guys this is Harish Bali from Technofare Through this short tutorial I’m going toexplain you how to delete cookies in Google chrome. But before that let’s have a quick look atthe difference between cookies, cache and browsing history. Cookies are little files that remember yourlogins or record of your last interaction with the website. Cache: These are temporary storage areas onyour hard disk where frequently accessed data
is stored so there is no need to re fetchthe data whenever you visit a website the next time. Browsing history: it logs the date, time andweb address of every webpage you visit. Most popular reason why people delete cookiesis that they don’t want websites to track their preferences to show them ads. Similar the most popular reason why peopledelete cache is that it sometimes can show badly formatted web pages like incompletepictures. This is the first diagnostic step that techieswant you to do when you face problem with
website loading. Third thing is browsing history if yourcomputer system is shared and you don’t want others to see your browsing history then youcan go and clear that off. Now let me show you how to delete cookieson your system. This is my Google chrome window. on this little icon on the top right. There are two ways in which this can be done. One is by going to History and another wayis going through tools.
Let me first explain the first method. If I click on History it will show you historyof all the files that I have opened. So let’s say I want to delete cookies of onlythe first three files. So, I will choose these files and click on clear browsing data. I can check and uncheck the options that Ineed to do. For example I also want to do delete browsinghistory for these three files. So perhaps I select all these three and clickon clear browsing data. So the browsing data of these three fileshave got cleared.
Now the second method is go back to the samelittle icon click on tools and from tools go to clear browsing data. Same window opens and there is another optionat the top which you can click and decide whether you want to delete your browsing dataor cookies for the last hour, last week, last day or since the beginning. So let me choose the beginning option andI want to delete only my cookies and cache images and file
so I will click on clear browsing data. So all my cookies have got deleted by thisaction. Thank you so much for watching this tutorial. Hope you enjoyed and do subscribe to thischannel for more tech related stuff.
