Refreshing Your Cache When Using Blossom's Yearbook Software

Nov 8th 2017

A cache, or Temporary Internet File, is a folder created by your internet browser to store items for future use (buttons, icons, photos, and even entire web pages). When you visit a website, your browser saves or caches these files and uses them in the future to help increase speed and load the page faster. This works great for increasing speed! However, if a website updates, you may not see the new version or features. It's a great idea to refresh your cache occasionally, or when the website isn't working well for you. You may be using a very old version!
