    Folks,

    How do I clear out my mac to speed my Internet up? With my old Dell Laptop there was a way to clear out the laptop in such a way that Temporary Internet files were dumped and as a result my Laptop worked faster on the net'

    Is there a similar way to do this with my Mac?

    It seems what you're looking for is to simply reset your Internet browser. Assuming you're using Safari, click on Safari in the menu and then select Reset Safari. Simply select whichever you want to clear and click reset.

    Thanks Ryan - That was exactly what I was looking for and I've also noticed that it was quicker to do than on a Dell laptop with Windows software!

    Thanks

    FYI. OSX doesn't create temp files like session windows does.
