How to troubleshoot your web browser performance


This video will show you how to
improve your browser’s performance
by clearing cookies, cache and
managing your extensions or add-ons.
We’ll show you how to clear
your cookies and cache
in your web browser and how to
monitor add-ons and extensions.
After clearing cookies you will
have to log back into any websites
that require a login, as the cookies
are how the websites identify you.
To clear your cookies,
open a browser,
then click on the three dots in the
top right corner of the screen.
This may differ depending on
the browser you are using.
Click “More tools”,
then “Clear browsing data”.
Select a time range.For the greatest performance
improvement, select “All time”.
Then choose which data
you’d like to clear.
“Cookies and other site data”,which is where the bulk of the
information is stored
and “Cached images and files”will clear the most space
on your computer.
Click “Clear Data”.Extensions and add-ons give your
web browser extra functionality,
but if you have too many installed,they can slow down
your web browsing.
By disabling or removing extensions
you don’t use or recognise,
you’ll be able to further improve
your web browser’s performance.
In your browser,
click on the three dots,
then click “More tools”,
then “Extensions”
to see which add-ons you
currently have installed.
Select the ones you don’t need,
then disable or delete them
by either clicking
the‘Enabled’box,
or the rubbish
bin beside it.
You may need to restart your browser
for the changes to take effect.
Closing unused programs and tabs,checking your hard drive for errors,
deleting unwanted temporary files
and defragmenting the diskcan all make a difference to the
speed of all programs,
not just your web browser.And that’s it!If you perform these few small
housekeeping actions
from time to time,
you might notice an improvement
in your browser’s performance.For support when you need it,
