View Cache and Clear Storage in Opera browser on the Computer

Do you need to view the cache and clear site storage in the Opera browser? Learn how to manage temporary site data and storage.

The Opera browser allows one to view and control the cache size occupied by the website storage. The browser cache consists of temporary files and images that facilitate the quick loading of the website when we visit it next time.

We can view the total cache size and clear it for all sites. Clearing the cache also removes any underlying site loading issues within the browser.

In this guide, we have shared the steps to view site cache size and clear it to increase the storage space in the Opera browser.

Note: Clearing cache may cause the website to load slower when you visit for the first time. However, it will be smooth once the cache is recreated in the browser.

Bottom Line

Excessive cache stored in the browser can lead to issues like slow loading of your pages, abrupt crashing, and other browser errors. In that case, we should check cache size and regularly clear the data from the Opera browser.

Apart from the cache, the browser also stores the cookies and browsing history, which can be removed from the browsing data settings page to fix any site loading issues.
