Hi, my name is Dave Andrews. Today I'm going to show you how to delete temporary Internet files. So let's go to our computer. I'm going to open up Internet Explorer by clicking on the start button and just launch Internet Explorer. Now we want to clear out our temporary Internet files. As you're browsing the Internet, it downloads the images you see in the web pages and store them on the hard drive of your computer in what should be a temporary basis but sometimes they stick around longer than you want. So I'm going to show you how to delete those. Go to the tools tab here and just select Internet options. Now in the very first screen that pops up on the general tab, you can see browsing history and we're going to click on delete. This brings up an option to delete your temporary Internet files as well as the history of websites you've visited, any data you typed in the forms, passwords you've saved and cookies that have been entered. We just want to delete our temporary Internet files, so click on delete files and it will ask you, "are you sure you want to delete all of the temporary files"? We are, so let's click on yes. Now it is good, just come through and deleted all of the web pages and images and videos that we've viewed on this computer. My name is Dave Andrews and I've just showed you how to delete the temporary Internet files.
