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

When your MIDAS room booking software is updated to a newer release, you may initially notice that 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" (also known as "Temporary Internet Files" in Internet Explorer) will likely resolve such issues.

The following describes where you'll find the setting to clear the cache in the current versions of each major browser:

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"

To clear Edge's Cache:

Settings → Privacy & security → Browsing data → Choose what to clear
Ensure that the "Cached data and files" option is selected, and then click "Clear"

Mozilla Firefox

To clear Firefox's Cache:

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

Select a time range of "Everything", check the "Cached images and files", and click "Clear data".

From Develop menu, select Empty Caches
