What happens when I clear my cache?

Occasional Contributor

I was just wondering exactly what kinds of things Edge clears when I empty its cache. If I clear my cache, will it clear all the cookies too, therefore signing me out of everything?

no, cookies can be cleared separately.
clearing cache clears saved images, files like html, css, javascript, things that websites are made of.

in Edge settings: edge://settings/clearBrowserData

there is a separate check box called "Cookies and other site data"
if you check that box and press the "clear now" button, then your cookies will be deleted.
Okay, thank you so much!
You're welcome! :)
