One common question received by WebSpawner Customer Support is:
“I can’t find the Refresh or Reload button… where is it?”
The Refresh or Reload button is in the toolbar of your web browser program. When clicked, it forces the browser to load a fresh copy of the webpage being viewed from the webhost’s server. This is helpful if you have made changes to your webpage but are unable to see the changes when your view the page (which would be due to your web browser displaying a locally cached copy of the page from a previous visit). Clicking Refresh or Reload while viewing your webpage should cause your browser to display the most recent version of the page, including your changes.
