How to refresh or force your computer to get fresh files.
Short and Sweet. Did you know that the F5 key on your keyboard forces your computer to fetch fresh files?
Have you ever been on the web and you can’t understand why the page won’t update or change?
(like after you pay a bill, or fill something in?) or in my case I design websites and blogs and I was constantly hitting the “refresh” button all the time, many people don’t even know about this mystery refresh button, so I took a few screenshots for you- So what they do is they get fresh versions of the pages you are looking at. But sometimes even that won’t work because they just refresh to the pages saved in your cache or temp files.
But if you hit F5 it forces your machine to get new files! This has made me very happy.
