Time: 2-3 minutes
Materials A Macintosh computer running OSx
Open Google Chrome
Click on Chrome located on the top left corner of your screen, and then go to Preferences. A new webpage will open up, allowing you to access all of Chrome’s settings.
This webpage doesn’t show all of Chrome’s preferences, and the settings we want are in the advanced section. To get to the advanced settings, croll to the bottom of the page and click on Show advanced settings....
Now click on the Clear browsing data… button, located under the Privacy header. This will open a pop-up box.
In the pop-up box, click the drop-down box that says the past hour and change it to The beginning of time.
TIP: Uncheck Clear browsing history unless you want Chrome to no longer auto-propagate the web address of sites you have visited in the past.
Click on Clear browsing data. If you have a lot of cookies, this may take a while. Once complete, the pop-up box will close and the process is complete.
