I have a new computer running Windows 8.  I frequently like to scrub my temp folders and history.  I can't find content.ie5 in Windows 8.  Under normal conditions I would goto Internet Explorer tools and click view files.  From there I could type content.ie5 and select all and delete.  In Windows 8 it's not there anymore. 

 

Did Microsoft replace content.ie5 with something new?  If so what and where is this new hidden ability to track internet usage located?

 

Thank you,

I believe you may be referring to the following path  C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache.

If you open internet options & go to the Browsing history, clicking the Settings button will open a window titled Website Data Settings where you can view the cache. Hope that's what you're looking for.

OK, so if "iNetCache" is the new "Temperary Internet Files"

Then what and Where would the information that went into "..\Temperary Internet Files\Content.ie5\" for the previous versions in windows be located under Windows 8?

 

I only ask because I am certain the storage of this type of hidden user data has not been eliminated.  I believe it has been renamed and relocated to some other hard to access area.

 

Thank you

Open a Run dialog and type 'temp' and/or '%temp%', (without quotes); those are the two temp file locations.
