It seem that all I want to do these days is work from the command line and keep my mouse from working. The less I have to use my mouse, the happier it makes me. I wanted to share with you how to delete IE cache from the command line. Follow these simple steps.
Normally, you have to open IE and choose Tools | Delete Browsing History | Delete All…
Another way would be to open the command line and type the following commands:
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 255 (Deletes ALL History)
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 1 (Deletes History Only)
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 2 (Deletes Cookies Only)
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 8 (Deletes Temporary Internet Files Only)
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 16 (Deletes Form Data Only)
- RunDll32.exe InetCpl.cpl,ClearMyTracksByProcess 32 (Deletes Password History Only)
It works great; I even put together a quick video for your enjoyment.
