How to change the location of the cache folder?



  • Hello Everyone, I have been enjoying Vivaldi since the beta version and love it so much. Special thanks for the super development team for their enduring updates! Today, I would like to set Vivaldi's cache folder onto RAM drive, but could not find such setting in the setting menu. Could anyone help me to change the cache folder location from default (maybe on C: drive) to another location? Thank you for your intelligent input. Sincerely yours, decamelon

    You can select an other directory.
    1. Select the desktop shortcut of Vivaldi
    2. Hit Alt+Enter
    3. Add commandline switch –disk-cache-dir= (add your directory after the =) in Destination field after vivaldi.exe



  • Thank you for your quick help!

    Successfully could add the switch at the property menu of the short-cut.

    I am very excited that Vivaldi has all features other browsers have and more!

    Sincerely yours,

    What if I don't use a desktop shortcut? I use only a pinned to taskbar icon which can not be edited in such a manner. Isn't there any other way to change the cache golder without having to use a desktop shortcut?



  • Hi rado84,

    Hope you are fine as usual.

    You are right while Gwen-Dragon is also right.
    I create the short-cut with the designated switch AND THEN pin it down to the task bar.
    (I just drop-down the short-cut on to the task bar, you know.)
    You will see the cache folder to the directory you switched for sure.

  • Yes, it worked. Thanks! :woohoo:

    That used to work with v1.2. Ever since the latest beta build arrived (1.3.551.13), this method stopped working and the browser keeps ignoring the shortcut command for cache folder.



  • Hi rado84,

    Sorry my late response and sorry for my misinformation regarding this issue.
    Recently, I have downgrade my latest browser to v1.2 stable for some reason…

    I don't know how the development team would handle this feature at next stable version.
    They might bring it as a new option in the setting menu??
    I cross all my fingers for this new feature including my feet; )

    Sincerely yours
    decamelon.
