    Hi Carl, welcome to the forums, click the gear wheel (top right), Internet Options, under General tab you click delete in Browsing History, you can delete Temporary files.

    Hi Tepid , Going this route C:\Users\PROFILE\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files , I show no Temporary Internet Files folder. I think I have all hidden files showing.

    It is there... you did replace the word profile with your profile name?

    Also, make sure both hidden files and Hidden System files are showing

    Old thread, but I've found other locations the Win8 stores temp internet files:

    C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files
    and
    C:\Windows\SysWOW32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files

    hi there,
    I did manage to get to the folder after changing -system to show hidden files through default and then followed the path stated above but I am very surprised to see my "temp internet fie" folder was empty...
    Would you have any idea how come it is empty?
