Q: What is a ‘cache’ and why does it affect my computer performance?
A: Internet browsers use ‘caching’ to store HTML web pages by storing a copy of visited pages, and then using that copy to render whenever you revisit that page. When the stored cache is too big, this can cause performance issues with your browser. Cleaning the cache might resolve issues such as (but not limited to): slowness, firing error messages, and pages freezing.
Q: What is Compatibility Mode?
A: Compatibility mode is a software mechanism in which a software either emulates an older version of software, or mimics another operating system in order to allow obsolete or incompatible software or files to remain compatible with the computer's newer hardware or software. Enabling the browser’s compatibility view might resolve issues such as, but not limited to links, drop down menus or buttons that are not working properly, missing website functionalities and webpage freeze.
Following these steps should solve your issue. If it hasn’t, please call our Help Desk.
