    How to Clear Your Browser's Cookies
    • Cookies contain information that websites have gathered about you and stored on your computer as small text files. Most of these files are completely harmless, but others store where you went, what you did, and any personal information you gave. Web sites may also allow other websites (their advertisers, for example) to put cookies known as third-party cookies on your computer. To ensure that companies are not keeping tabs on what you do online, use one of the following methods to clear your browser’s cookies.
    1. Open your browser and go to Tools > Internet Options.

    2. Under the General tab, find the Browsing History section. From here, you can decide whether to delete some or all cookies:
      • To delete all cookies, click uncheck the Preserve Favorite Website Data box, check the box next to Cookies, and hit Delete.

      • To selectively delete cookies, go to Settings > View Files. Select the cookies you wish to delete (hold down CTRL while clicking to make multiple selections) and press Delete.

    1. Open your browser and go to Safety > Delete Browsing History.

    2. Make sure Cookies is checked.

    3. Check or uncheck any additional aspects of your browsing history.

    4. Click Delete.
