How do you clear the Vivaldi Cache?

  • Re: Clear a cache

    I have looked in settings and the history tab. What am I missing?

    Please do not use long titles and try to explain in the post what is wrong for you.

  • @shellyb You can do it from the Tools Menu, Clear Private Data, or assign a shortcut to it. Ctrl+Shift+Delete is the default shortcut.

    The dialogue will remember your last used settings for period, and for which items to clear.

  • @pesala Thank you so much!

    For anyone else who is as lost as I was you can find the Tools Menu under the little "V" in the upper left corner of your screen.

  • @shellyb
    Or in a new tab when you click on the history button than there is a brush like button in the upper right corner - in case you use the history page more often

  • Or you can press F2 and type "Clear Private Data" and select the right option there.

  • Or you can use the extension Clear Cache which gives you a nifty icon to click to quickly clear the cache.

  • .... OR ... write a simple DOS batch file (using commands in Command Prompt) to delete the cache folder.
    I have a comprehensive BAK.BAT batch file to do daily back-ups, the first part of which deletes all the useless space-consuming files of my choice.

    Have a look at the 'DEL' options within the Windows Command Prompt.

    This assumes you are comfortable creating batch files, of course. 🙂
    If not, I'm prepared to help a little.

    Hope this helps.
