clear Microsoft Edge WebView2 Runtime cache

Recommended Posts

Microsoft Edge WebView2 is like a modified copy of Edge browser and need some way to be cleared. It can load great amount of data in the system memory and keep 800+ mb in the disk. I hope you can understand my poor English, thank you!

It's looking like these cache files may be stored in a different location per program (source: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/66438776/where-does-webview2-store-cookies-on-win-10 - the first/top reply), if I'm interpreting that correctly.

Still, I confess to not at all being an expert on the intricoes of WebView2, and I'll be happy to get this suggestion to our development team for further investigation and consideration.

Make sure to also check out the "CCleaner Ideas and Suggestions" link on the main section of the forum if you'd like to submit suggestions there or comment on any of the suggestions already submitted by our other users.

Hello guys! Thank you for replay. I installed Webview2 (Evergreen Bootstrapper) to fix the Windows 11 "Widgets" which had a blank panel. Currently, the application consumes 462.50 mb of disk storage on my system and approximately 174 mb of RAM, which can increase as you browse. I found the application folder at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\EdgeWebView. I hope this information can help some way.

I believe the winapp2.ini team has this included in their data set. Just head over to https://github.com/MoscaDotTo/Winapp2 and download winapp2.ini and drop it in the C:\Program Files\CCleaner\ folder. They update it regularly and have a DOS app that you can run as admin and it will download and trim the winapp2.ini file automatically for you.

I hope posting about this isn't against the rules. If so, I apologize.

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.
