6 Ways to Clear Cache on Bluestacks

If you want to clear the cache on your Bluestacks app, here are six methods you can use to do it—one of which should hopefully be simple enough for even the most inexperienced users. Bluestacks is an Android emulator designed to run on Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, which means you can use Android apps on your computer rather than download them directly to your mobile device (provided you have the right hardware). If you want to make sure everything’s running smoothly, you can perform a cache cleanse if it’s been awhile since you last ran one—or if things aren’t working as well as they used to. Here are six ways to clear cache on Bluestacks from start to finish.

1) Open up the storage option

If you’re looking for help cleaning up your Android phone, or clearing cache, in general, you may have come across articles discussing how users can accomplish such a task by going into settings and tapping a variety of buttons. But if you’re new to Android, or even relatively unfamiliar with it, navigating your way through menus is just one more obstacle between you and getting things done. The good news is that there’s an easier way! All you need to do is open up your storage option (typically found in storage & USB or storage), navigate down until you find Bluestacks, then tap clear cache. That’s it!

2) Delete items individually

Are you confused about how to delete things individually? It's actually easier than you think! Simply click and hold an app icon, drag it over another app icon (or multiple icons), then drop it in order to group items together. Finally, tap Edit at the top of your screen. Now you can select individual icons by tapping each one and choose whether or not to move them into Trash or back home. Delete all items at once: If you prefer a more streamlined approach, tap Trash instead of Edit and then tap Empty Trash. All apps will be moved into Trash automatically. And that's it—you're done!

3) Empty the Downloads folder

Make sure you empty your download folder, as it may be slowing down your game. Bluestacks gives you a Download folder in which all of your downloads are stored. And when you have several files stored there, they will slow down everything—even if those files are not related to games or software, in any way. Open up that folder by clicking My Apps and selecting Downloads from the menu bar at the top of your screen. Once there, select all of your downloads and press either Delete or Move To Recycle Bin so that they won’t bog down processes later on.

4) Using Safe Mode

When you're in trouble and don't know what's causing it, booting into safe mode can give you a glimpse of what's going on inside your device. Safe mode loads an OS with only essential drivers and apps, so if something is wrong, it'll be easier to find. You can also use safe mode when uninstalling third-party apps as a way of checking whether that app may be causing problems. To boot into safe mode in Windows 10, hit Ctrl + Shift + Esc (or just hold down power button for 4 seconds) and then click or tap See advanced repair options. Next click/tap Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart > 5 (or whatever number corresponds with Safe Mode). Your computer will reboot into Safe Mode.

5) Restart device

The simplest way to clear cache is to restart your device. If you haven’t done so in a while, give it a try; turning your smartphone or tablet off and then back on again can do wonders for sluggishness. Simply hold down the power button until you get an option to power down, and then select it. The same technique applies to clearing cache on a laptop as well. Remember: turning devices off may make you lose any unsaved work, so be sure that whatever you’re doing has been saved before powering down.

6) Free up memory

Memory problems are often linked to performance issues, and clearing your cache is a quick way to help improve that. On Windows machines, you can go into Task Manager and click Startup (or, if you have Show processes from all users checked, just look for items with System process in their name). This will let you review every item that has been loaded during your session—including ones that run automatically—and decide whether or not they're worth keeping. There's no universal rule for what belongs and what doesn't, but generally speaking you want to remove most of these items; these are things like Google Chrome's locally stored settings file or Microsoft Office 2007 Quickstarter.


One of the best features of Bluestacks is that it’s incredibly easy to download new apps and games onto your computer or device, and once you’ve downloaded something, it will remain in your Bluestacks library unless you want to remove it. This makes it simple to find the app or game you want to run again, but if you don’t like the way an app runs on your computer, then Bluestacks can quickly start taking up space on your hard drive if you keep every app you install.
