Hi. My name is Brian and this is how to clear your cache memory. Now many of you know that on Internet Browsers they have a cache which is just basically files that are stored on your computer from websites that will make your website load faster when you go to them for a second time. But your computer also has a cache that saves files on your computer from different programs to make things load faster. Sometimes if there's too many cached files, some would have, there's too many cache files on a web browser, your computer will slow down. So I'm going to show you how to clear your cache on your computer. On a Mac if you go into the finder and then go under go and go to folder, you can go to the folder library caches. Once you go into that folder you'll see a bunch of different folders that have all the cached files on your computer. You can delete all of them if you want. I wouldn't recommend that because it might slow down your computer even more since then your computer has to re-cache everything. What I would recommend doing is maybe going into specific folders and deleting the cache for specific folders, especially for programs that you might not use anymore. That might speed up your computer.
