How to clear your web browser's "cache"/Temporary Internet Files

Whenever your MIDAS room booking software is updated, you may notice that initially some visual elements look a little wrong, or that some functionality appears to be broken. This is most likely due to your web browser still retaining elements of the previous version of MIDAS you'd been using in its "cache" (memory).

Clearing your browser's "cache" (known as "Temporary Internet Files" in Internet Explorer) will likely resolve any such issues.

The following describes where you'll find the settings to empty the cache in the latest versions of each major browser:

Google Chrome

To clear Chrome's Cache

More tools → Clear browsing data (or type chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in the address bar).
Select a time range of "Everything", check the "Cached images and files", and click "Clear data".
Apple Safari

To clear Safari's Cache

Preferences → Advanced → Show develop menu in menu bar.
From Develop menu, select Empty Caches.
Microsoft Edge

To clear Edge's Cache:

Settings → Privacy & services → Clear browsing data → Choose what to clear (or type edge://settings/clearBrowserData in the address bar).
Select a time range of "All Time", check the "Cached images and files", and click "Clear now".
Mozilla Firefox

To clear Firefox's Cache:

Options → Privacy & Security → Cookies and Site Data → Clear Data.
Check "Cached Web content", and click "Clear".

To clear Opera's Cache

Easy setup → Clear browsing data (or type opera://settings/clearBrowserData in the address bar).
Select a time range of "Everything", check the "Cached images and files" option, and click "Clear data".
Microsoft Internet Explorer

To clear Internet Explorer's Cache (Temporary Internet Files):

Internet Options → General → Browsing History → Delete.
Ensure that the "Temporary Internet files and website files" option is selected, and then click "Delete".
