    Browser History not clearing

    I am on Widows 8.1 been on it 12 months
    I am having problems with my browsers settings Chrome Firefox IE 11 plus when put in a search engine.
    I have a web site which I have done some major changes to, but when I go to check the new site on the web, it is the old one there. I went back andremoved the site altogether but all browsers still find it there
    How can I stop this happening?
    Thanks Quilly

    Some possibilities: clear browser cache (everything) and restart browser \ refresh using f5 \ refresh using ctrl+f5
    See what works best. If that does not help (it should!) your webhost and\or internet provider has some caching going on.

    Hi 4WD
    Sorry but it did not work, I have cleared browsercache on all three browsers, but thinking about it there may be one difficulty.
    1) I have a web site on the free space that comes with mybroadband.
    2) I have used all the space allotted to me
    3) I built another site on X10Hostings which is a free spacearea
    4) Put a short cut to it on my home page, of the first site
    5) It is the second site, which is not changing, when Iclick the short cut.
    6) But if I copy the short cut off my home page and paste itinto the bowser it works, it goes to the new area on all 3 browsers.
    Any Ideas
