Please make sure that you save any work on the web browser you are clearing, and you can remember your passwords/your passwords are saved for these sites as the below fixes will wipe all automatic logins to all websites, and will log you out of all websites.

Under Clear browsing data section directly underneath click on the button "Choose what to clear".

• In the time range check box, select All Time, below check the boxes next to Cookies and other site data and Cached images and files and uncheck everything else.

• Click on Clear now.

  • Following this, you need to close and re-open Microsoft Edge, if you don't, then the fix won't work. After re-opening, you can open all of your previous websites by doing the following:
    1. Press and hold CTRL and press the H Key on your keyboard, this will open a History tab on the top right of your screen
