As you browse the Web with IE10, a significant amount of data is stored on your local hard drive. This information ranges from a record of the sites that you have visited to temporary files that allow pages to load faster on subsequent visits. While each one of these data components serves a purpose, they can also present privacy or other concerns to the person using the browser.

Thankfully, IE10 provides the ability to both manage and remove this sometimes sensitive information through what is essentially a user-friendly interface. Although the sheer amount of private data types may seem overwhelming at first, this tutorial will turn you into an expert in no time.

First, open your IE10 browser.

Windows 8 users: Please note that this tutorial is for IE10 in Desktop Mode.
