Hi,

On Windows XP for Internet Explorer the cookies and cache files are stored in the following file path: C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\.

FireFox will store the cookies in C:\Documents and Settings\<user Name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile Name>\cookies.txt and the cache in C:\Documents and Settings\Chris Firth\Local Settings\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\lh2nzhfv.default\Cache.

On Linux, it depends on what browser you are using

You can view your firefox cache by typing "about:cache" in the address bar.

Chris

Matthew, all Windows XP computers will have it, it may be hidden though. Try checking if you have hidden files enabled.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
