How and why to refresh a page.
Why to Reload
Your web browser stores ("caches") a copy of web pages so that they load faster for you.
This can cause confusion when a web page has changed.
In order to see the current version of a page, you may need to force a reload or refresh. This will cause your browser to re-check the web server to see if the page has changed.
How to Reload
Do not just click the reload/refresh button, instead:
- In Windows: Press Ctrl + F5. (In Windows 8 press only F5.)
- On a Mac/Apple: Press Apple + R or Cmd + R
