HOW TO…HINTS & TIPS

Note: PDF files can be very useful. Unfortunately they sometimes linger on long best their “Best Before” date. If you see any here (or anywhere on our site) that are no longer relevant or simply need to be updated or refreshed, please let the page author or webmaster know. Thank you.

If you want to recommend the addition of other issues to this page, please feel free to speak with or email Harvey(Webmaster) and he will do his best to update this page with useful information.

Refresh/Reload a Page (Viewing new page content):

Copies of pages viewed are usually stored on your computer in the browsers “Cache”. This way, when you wish to view the same page again it will load very quickly. The cache is usually refreshed automatically over some set time period. The problem with this is that newly posted content on a page may not show up until that page is “Refreshed’ or “Reloaded” — the cache picks up a new copy of the page.

Here are a few ways you can resolve this:

  • Right Click on your screen and inside the pop-up menu choose Refresh (PC) or Reload Page ( Mac)
  • Use the appropriate key press : [ F5 ] (PC) or [Command] + [ R ] (Mac)
  • Look in the menu: View–>Refresh (PC) or View—>Reload Page (Mac)
  • Or click the Refresh/Reload button (similar to these): refreshbuttonieorreloadbuttonff
