  • Open IE.
  • Click on Tools > Internet Options > General.
  • In the "Browsing history section", click on Settings:
  • Go to "Temporary Internet Files" > "Check for newer versions of stored pages" and make your selection:
    • Every time I visit the webpage.
    • Every time I start Internet Explorer.
    • Automatically
    • Never.
