Sometimes you may need a quick and easy way to access Internet Explorer’s cache. Today we take a look at IECacheView which is a great application to get the job done.

Setup

There is no installation for you to worry about. Simply unzip the program zip file, place the two files inside (IECacheView.exe and IECacheView.chm) in their own folder in Program Files, and create a shortcut. Everything will be all ready to go.

Once you open IECacheView, this is what it will look like…
