Where are my changes?

Good morning, friends. Here is another tip for blogging and general website info. Have you ever made changes to your blog or website and then viewed and not seen those changes? That most likely is because you are not viewing the most current version on the web. To refresh your browser, on the top row of your keypad, kinda towards the left, push the f5 key. This updates your browser and gives the current version of your blog or site. 'Still not seeing the changes?

This could be because your computer's cache (pronounced as "cash") is full of so much stuff, and so many records/history ("cookies") of the places you've been online are still there. What a clutter! Here's how to clear those from 3 of the most used browsers for Microsoft Windows ©; I am not familiar with Apple Mac © systems. If you do have more than one browser, you will want to do this for all of your browsers one at a time. Take your time, as these actions cannot be undone.

For Internet Explorer (IE) browser:
1. On the top left of the screen, left-click Tools. Choose Delete browsing history.
2. Check the top 4 boxes, but NOT Form Data or Passwords.
3. When the box appears, click Delete Browsing History. Soon, across the bottom of your screen, a yellow bar will soon appear telling you that IE has deleted the selected history.

For Firefox browser:
1. At the top left of the screen, left-click the orange Firefox button.
2. Scroll over to the right to History, Clear Recent History. Select this. When the box appears, Choose Everything.
3. Then check Browsing & Download History, Cookies, and Cache. Again, do NOT check Saved Passwords.
4. Click Delete Selected History. Soon it will be done.

For Google Chrome browser:
1. On the top right of the screen, left-click the little grey box with the horizontal lines inside of it.
2. Scroll down and select History. Select Clear Browsing Data. Check the top 4, but NOT Saved Passwords.
3. When the page appears, up on the top left, click the box Clear Browsing Data. Soon it will be done.

'Hoping that this will help you all. Remember that the f5 key will always refresh the web page anytime you use it. Clearing History should be done regularly to stay current in the browsers and clear your computer of the history that slows it down.

*NEW INFO*: If your Blogger navbar across the top of your blog disappears, it may be because you have not joined Google+, or you have it turned off. This happened to me. You will need to sign in to the gmail account that you use to log in to Blogger and join/turn on Google+ and the Blogger navbar will reappear. Prim blessings to you all.
