    It does a little more but makes it easy.

    Okay I just installed that app. Seems pretty useful. Yet it's not showing anything for my cache, which is weird. There should be at least a few items in there, since I cleared my cache in other methods yesterday, yet I used the browser a few times today already. I'll check the cache later I guess and see what it shows there.

    It doesn't show anything for me either but I use a non default location for cache.

    Try this:

    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/chrome_cache_view.html

    You can use it to view cache and check that it cleared.

    It's File> Select Cache Folder.

    Typically it is here:

    C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Cache

    but if it is located somewhere else browse to it and set the app to remember location.

    Here is my cache before cleaning using "Click & Clean" extension.

    Then with browser still running I cleared cache via "Click & Clean"

    Hover mouse over Cache button and click the "bin" symbol to empty.

    The other significant advantage of CCleaner is that it can clear the cache and clean cookies (except the ones you whitelist) from all your browsers in one go, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, IE and any others.
    The reason I started the thread was to find some other way to clear history other than CCleaner since Avast bought CCleaner I have read some not so good things about it so I deleted it even though I just renewed the license a month ago.

    I'm looking for a different way, I totally missed the posy about click and clean, I think too many are posting about this subject too quickly.
