Why clear the cache and cookies in the browser
Information from any website that you have visited is stored in hundreds of thousands of files in your phone memory. Huge websites with too many fancy things are heavy to load in your browser, and they may occupy a large space in the phone memory. Each time you visit a website, part of the process is saved in the browser's cache for the browser to display stored files from the server, and these stored files can help cut the load times whenever you visit the website again.
From time to time, web developers have to make updates to the files that comprise their website to add another feature. If you maintain those old saved files, there is a tendency that it will load the old web information, and then it may not function correctly. You may encounter run time errors and missing buttons on the website, and you may be unable to save the time sheet. The performed action may not respond appropriately, but deleting the cache and cookies will resolve the issue.

I want to clear cookies on my Samsung Tab A. I have tried: Googling how to clear cookies on this tablet. I think it was caused by: Don't know

I am trying to clean the cookies out of my tablet. I cannot find the menu button after I open the world icon .
The menu button is located at the bottom of the device, usually outside of the screen either to the left or to the right of the tablet if you hold it in the portrait mode.
In some Galaxy Tabs, the menu button is the leftmost and should light up as you touch it. In other Samsung Galaxy Tabs, it can be even on the screen, in the lower-left corner in the black-stripe area along with the time.
If you do not see the menu button, then tap and hold the multitask button (it looks like two rectangles one behind another) to use the menu function.
If you cannot locate the button at all, then you may have a three-line (a hot-dog menu) or three-dot icon in the application that replaces the function of the menu button.
