SUMMARY

The actual size of the Explorer Cache folder may be larger than the size that is set in Internet Explorer Preferences.

MORE INFORMATION

Internet Explorer improves performance when you have many cached files by tracking the total number of files in the Explorer Cache folder. For Web pages that you access frequently, Internet Explorer accesses the Web page and its associated files from the cache instead of downloading it entirely from the Internet. Depending on the size of each file, the total size of the cache folder can exceed the maximum size set in Internet Explorer Preferences.

To change the Internet Explorer cache size, click Preferences on the Edit menu in Internet Explorer, click Advanced under Web Browser, and then type a new size for the cache in the Maximum Size box under Cache.
