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.


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…

Scroll over to the right of the app and you get additional information and it’s easy to customize what columns are displayed based on your personal needs.



Time for a look at the menu system for IECacheView…here you can see the “File, Edit, & View Menus”. Each one provides a multitude of options that you can apply to folders, the cache, sub-folders, URL opening, saving, deleting, & copying, display (i.e. grid lines and columns), html reports, and more (very nice!).


The “Options and Help Menus”. Notice that you can specify the types of files that you would like to have displayed (very convenient!).

These are the options available in the “Right Click Menu”.


IECacheView makes a nice little utility to have around if you ever need a quick and easy way to dig into Internet Explorer’s cache.
