Lightbulb How-to Clear your Cache and Cookies with PICS (FIREFOX)(IE7)(OPERA)

It's highly recommended that you clear your cache and cookies after each Webkinz World Update so that you can view everything and enjoy the site as intended. It's better not to do a C/C/C if you have DIAL UP. This is needed for High-Speed

It's good to do it more frequently but not necessary.

If you can't see what has been updated - you need to clear your cache and cookies.

It's very easy and You'll have a better experience in Webkinz World!

Remember, you should ask permission from the owner of the computer so that you don't erase needed passwords or cookies.You can just click off the cache & cookies only.

What is private data?

Private data is used by the browser to enhance your experience on the internet. When the browser remembers a web site you previously visited or the username and password for your favorite web site, this information is considered your private data.
  • Cache: stores temporary files, such as web pages and other online media, that you have downloaded from the Internet.
  • Cookies: stores files created by web sites, that store information on your computer, such as your preferences when visiting that site. (When a web site has a "remember this" checkbox, they are using a cookie.)
Here are 3 sets of Instructions. First FIREFOX, 2nd Internet Explorer 7 and 3rd Opera.

I omitted pictures for the last 2 browsers because they are both similar to FF.

Firefox
> Go to TOOLS
> CLEAR PRIVATE DATA
> Select Cache & Cookies
> Click Clear Private Data now Tab.
>*OPTIONAL* Configure Private Data Removal
Clearing your private data


*Instructions & IMG from FF help*

    Click the image to open in full size.
  2. The Clear Private Data window will open, allowing you to select which private data you want to clear.

    Click the image to open in full size.
  3. Check mark the data you want to clear, then click on Clear Private Data Now, to clear the data. That's it! To close the Clear Private Data window without clearing any private data, click on Cancel.
Configuring private data removal

  1. At the top of the Firefox windowOn the menu bar, click on the ToolsFirefoxEdit menu, and select Options...Preferences....
  2. Select the Privacy panel. You can see three areas related to your privacy: History, Cookies and Private Data.
  3. In the Private Data section, the following options are available:

    Click the image to open in full size.
    • Always clear my private data when I close Firefox: You can choose to have Firefox clear your private data whenever it is closed. To configure what data is cleared, click Settings....
    • Ask me before clearing private data: With this option selected, Firefox asks you before automatically clearing the specified private data.
      • To immediately clear all private data that you have specified to be removed, click Clear Now...

IE7
*Instructions from IE help*

> Got to TOOLS
> INTERNET OPTIONS
> BROWSING HISTORY
> Select DELETE
> Delete Temp Int. Files & Delete Cookies.
Delete temporary Internet files Delete temporary Internet files

Follow these steps to delete the files and information that Internet Explorer stores on your computer. This information includes the list of websites you have visited, cookies, information you've entered into web forms (for example, your name and address), website passwords, and other temporarily saved information. Your links and favorites will not be deleted.

  1. Open Internet Options (through TOOLS at the top of your browser)
  2. Click the General tab, and then, under Browsing history, click Delete.
  3. Click Delete all, click Yes to confirm that you want to delete this information, and then click OK.
    Note
    • Deleting everything can free hard disk space, solve problems with your web browser, and provide some additional privacy, but it might inconvenience you by removing information you might need on the Internet. For example, you will have to retype passwords that were previously stored on your computer.


OPERA
> Go to TOOLS
> DELETE PRIVATE DATA
> Select DELETE
