How can I clear and erase the content of my Flash plugin? Does the Flash plugin have a history cache? These are two questions a Web Talk reader asked me right yesterday. The Flash plugin is used by all browsers to display special sections of websites such as Facebook or MySpace for example, or to show special content such ads or games. As a consequence a big quantity of data will be stored in a special folder called Flash History Cache which does not get cleared when you flush your browser cache as it is located on a different place. Because of this the history cache will tend to become bigger and bigger and in the long run it could also slightly decrease your browser and computer performance. Let’s see how to clear it in a couple of steps.
- Click this Website Storage Settings panel link to access YOUR Flash cache.
- Now click the Folder tab which should be the tab right before the last one on the right.
- On such a small embedded window you will be able to gather important infos. The lower part of the window shows you a list of the websites you visited that use Flash technology.
- Click one of the website and click the Delete Website to clear and purge the plugin from that particular website.
- Confirm if asked.
- Alternatively, you can click the Delete all Sites button to erase your Flash history cache completely.
