How to do a Hard Refresh on your browser

Sometimes it's necessary to do a Hard Refresh to see your changes. A web browser may cache a quite a bit of data to keep your web surfing experience fast and efficient.

However, this might be a bit of a pain in the rear at times when you're working on making changes to a website, since it's hanging onto data prior to your changes.

If you've already purged the cache and you're not seeing the change still, try doing a hard refresh using the steps below.

On Windows and Linux:

Google Chrome:

  • Hold down Ctrl and click the reload button, or
  • Press Ctrl + F5 or Ctrl + Shift + R .

Mozilla Firefox:

  • Hold down Ctrl and press the F5 key, or
  • Hold down Ctrl + Shift and press R .

Microsoft Edge:

  • Hold down Ctrl and press F5 , or
  • Hold Ctrl + Shift + R .


  • Hold down Ctrl + F5 , or
  • Hold Ctrl + Shift + R .

Safari (Windows version):

  • Hold down Ctrl + R or Ctrl + F5 .

On macOS:

Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera:

  • Hold down Cmd + Shift + R .


  • Hold down the Option and Cmd keys and then press E , or
  • Hold down Cmd + Option + R .

Microsoft Edge (macOS version):

  • Hold down Cmd + Shift + R .

These shortcuts can change depending on the browser version and customized keyboard shortcuts, so it's a good idea to refer to the official documentation of the browser if you're running into any issues.
