Hi,

 

In XP I right clicked on the start button, clicked properties and after a couple of other clicks I was able to clean out files, or processes or whatever it was. How do I do this, and clear history in 8?

 

Thanks,

Bill

We would need to know which cache you want to clear.  DNS, temp files, etc.

 

If you still have a computer with XP installed on it, go through the steps and find out what the cache is, after that we can help you.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

On XP I right click the start button, then properties, and I get this message:

 

to remove records of recently accessed documents, programs and web sites click Clear

 

I click Clear and about 15 seconds later the button is no longer clickable
