    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.

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

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