How to reduce the hard drive space that Internet Explorer's Temporary Internet file use

Guide Overview

Internet Explorer creates temporary Internet files when you visit sites. These temp files can over time take up considerable space on your hard drive. This guide will explain how to limit the amount of space that Internet Explorer is allowed to use for this purpose. It is important to note, though, that for people with slow Internet Connections having Temporary Internet Files can help increase the speed of your browsing experience. For those with faster connections, it will not help much if at all.

  • Start Internet Explorer.

  • Click on the Tools menu and then click on the Internet Options option.

  • In the Temporary Internet Files section click on the Settings button.

  • In the Amount of disk space to use: section type the amount of disk space you would like to allow Internet Explorer to use for Temporary Internet Files.

  • Press the OK button and then click on the OK button to exit the options screen.
Now Internet Explorer will only use the amount of space you specified.
