Clearing Your Cache in Chrome Browser

What is Browser Cache and Why Should I Clear It?

The browser cache is a temporary storage location on your computer for files downloaded by your browser to display websites. Files that are cached locally include any documents that make up a website HTML files, CSS style sheets, JavaScript, as well as images and other multimedia content.

Regularly clearing cached speeds up browser loading times and loads new versions of websites, rather than relying on potentially outdated, cached information.

RepairQ is a cloud-based program that is accessed by your browser, and we occasionally release minor updates that may not function properly until the cache has been cleared. We recommend pausing your VCT and then clearing your cache as the first step of troubleshooting.

If you notice that RepairQ is not working as expected and clearing the browser cache has not resolved the issue, please contact RepairQ Support for assistance. Be sure to include any details, screenshots, and steps to reproduce the issue, so we can better assist your request.
