How to hard reload a web page

If a web page is not fully loaded, or an error message is shown, using a hard reload can sometimes fix the issue. A hard reload forces the re-downloading of information needed for the page as if your browser's cache was cleared.

The way to hard reload a web page differs from browser to browser.

  • Chrome for Windows and Edge Chromium:
    Hold CTRL and click the Reload button
  • Firefox for Windows:
    Press CTRL + F5
  • Chrome and Firefox for Mac:
    Hold SHIFT and click the Reload button
