Open Web pages faster by increasing your cache

. Monday, June 22, 2009

This is a cool information for those who use Internet Explorer
If you find your Internet Explorer to be slow in browsing pages the following will prove to be quite handy.

How is the setting going to help me?

The following setting increase the size of the Temporary Internet files cache on your Internet Explorer.

Whenever you load a page few temporary files are sent to your computer.

For eg: If there is an applet or an image on the page, the same is saved in a temporary file on your computer. So the next time you visit the same page such temporary files need not be saved again giving you better browsing speed.

Please note:
By default your Internet Explorer8 saves up to 600megabytes for such temporary files.This space may vary with different versions of Internet Explorer. It so happens that sometimes due to malicious software or certain clean up software this space gets restricted to 150-200megabytes.

To increase the Temporary Internet Files cache:

>>Go to the 'Tools menu' in your Internet Explorer

>>Click on 'Internet Options'

>>This will open an 'Internet Options' dialogue box

>>In the 'General tab' look for the 'Browsing history' section

>>Click on 'Settings' in the 'Browsing history' section

>>This will open a 'Temporary Internet Files and History Settings' dialog box

>>Look for 'Check for newer versions of stored pages:' section

>>Click on the 'Automatically' button

>>Set the amount of 'Disk space to use' to at least 250 megabytes (MB).

>>Click 'OK'.

The increased cache leads to a large number of unwanted temporary files which eventually slows down your computer.

Well I have a have a solution for this in my upcoming post
