How to Perform a Hard Refresh

  • Windows: Ctrl + F5
  • MacOS: Cmd + Shift + R
  • iOS: Open your browser’s settings (should be a hamburger menu in at the top right corner of the window). Tap the option to reload.
  • Android: Open your browser’s settings (usually a hamburger menu in the top right corner of the window). Tap the refresh icon.
