Deleting browser his­tory: Microsoft Edge

These instruc­tions will explain how to delete your stored Microsoft Edge browser data (browser his­tory, browser cache).

If you are looking for other browser instruc­tions, you can find these here.

  1. With the browser open, open the browser his­tory window by simul­ta­ne­ously pressing “Ctrl + Shift + Delete” or “Strg + Shift + Entf”.
  2. Select the period of time over you wish to delete cached infor­ma­tion using the Time range drop down menu, i.e. at least cov­ering your e-banking ses­sion. For instance entry Last hour.
  3. Select all items.
  4. Click Clear now.

Alter­na­tively, you can also surf in incog­nito or pri­vate mode, so that your browser doesn’t store any data in the first place.

To do so, open a new incog­nito window by clicking the three hor­i­zontal dots in the top right corner of the screen and then clicking “New InPri­vate window”. Or simul­ta­ne­ously press “Ctrl + Shift + N”/“Shift + Cmd + N”

Browser his­tory (also called browser cache) denotes a type of buffer memory of your browser. Browsers will store con­tent of web­sites vis­ited (e. g. images), so that they don’t have to be re-down­loaded every time you visit, and the site can there­fore be dis­played more quickly.
