So here I am working on the rules roundup game applet and every time I make a change and want to see my changes, I need to shut down IE and restart it. If I don't do this, I can press ctrl-refresh and I don't see my changes. Once I bounce IE, I can see my changes.
Anybody know of a way so that I can see my changes without rebooting IE?

Hi Paul,
Annoying isn�t it... Here�s the fix for it:
In IE, go to Tools | Internet Options, on the General tab, in the Temporary Internet Files frame, click the Settings... button, Change the "Check for newer versions of stored pages" to "Every visit to the page".
Hitting ctrl-F5 should make the browser recheck with the server for a new version, but it doesn�t. When I ran into this issue, I found buried in a document on MS�s web site a note that with the other options IE will "intelligently" decide if it (thinks it) needs to check with the server for a new version, even on a force refresh (ctrl-F5).
Oh, as a side effect, you might notice a slight slow-down in your normal everyday web surfing activities since it will now be checking for updates to a lot more files. Of course you can switch the setting back and forth as needed.
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
