    How do I know if I have the latest browser version?

    Check what version of browser you are using:

    Clearing your browser's cached files

    When you visit websites your browser stores files to reference later. These files are stored in a 'cache'. For example, your browser may save images you've seen so that they don't have to be downloaded every single time you revisit the site. This cache saves you time and data. Cached files, however, can stop you from seeing updated images and clickable buttons on a website and this can cause confusion. Clearing the cache just means emptying it, so the next time you display a webpage, the latest version will load and reference files be downloaded again. If you are experiencing issues you can clear the cache files for a particular site by pressing Shift-Refresh, Shift-F5 (on a PC) or Ctrl-Shift-R. Simply clicking on the Refresh button will not clear the cache. You should clear your cache regularly just to ensure the best experience when browsing websites.
