Clear cache in share point designer

mohamed adil blog


This is a quick tutorial covering how to clear your SPD 2013 Cache. That is handy, especially when working with SPD 2010 and SPD 2013.  Clearing the cache will remove any of your past connection history as well provide you a “clean slate” to work from.  The cache is not even cleared after doing a reinstall, so this really is the only way to clear it.

Versioning with check-in/out are great but not always preferred, and certainly not infallible. As I learned on a project a few years ago that recently bit me again when my new machine was not similarly configured, SharePoint Designer has a dirty little habit of caching files, including say the XML/XSLT, JS and CSS you might be working with on your site.

No need to fret though; buried in the settings of each version is a toggle that will ensure SPD never sets you back by loading a cached file.


  1. Close SPD if it is open
  2. Open My Computera.Click the address bar
  3. Paste in:
  4. Delete everything within this location
  5. Click the address bar
  6. Paste in:
    %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache
  7. Delete everything in this location
