How to clear your cache

            When you view a page or a website in your browser some of these pages and images are saved to your computer in order to speed up loading of the website. The problem is if the webpage is updated then your browser could still be loading the saved content, so this is why we recommend that you either hard refresh the page (Ctrl + F5) or clear your browsers cache.
