How to Clear Microsoft Teams Cache

Troubleshoot memory problems in Microsoft Teams desktop client

Data storage might not be an inevitable problem in the world of technological operations but in 2020 we’re yet to get rid of it. The solution to this problem is yet just a simple Delete button you need to press. When it comes to Microsoft Teams, where a lot of your commercial or personal work is done, that load of cache memory can puncture your workflow in disguise as no other troubleshoot might work. In such a situation, all you need to know is where to go to get rid of that extra Microsoft Teams data in order to run your operations smoothly.

How to Delete Microsoft Teams Cache Files

Before you delete the cache files, it’s better to close the Microsoft Teams app on your system so it doesn’t crash or conflict with the deletion of the files.

Simply closing the Microsoft Teams window wouldn’t fully close the app. For that, you need to find the Teams app icon on the taskbar, then right-click on it and select the ‘Quit’ option from the expanded menu.

After closing the Teams desktop app, open the Start menu and type/paste the following in the search box.

%appdata%\Microsoft\teams
Search %appdata%\Microsoft\teams in File Explorer

Select and open the Microsoft teams folder that displays in the search result.

After opening the folder, you will find all the stored data of Microsoft teams in different folders among which disposable data is stored in certain folders like Cache, GPU Cache, Blob Storage, Databases, and TMP. All you have to do is open these folders and clear all of their contents.

Select folders and clear contents

After clearing the folders, you have to restart your computer and relaunch the Microsoft Teams desktop app.

That is all you needed to know to clear the cache in your Microsoft Teams application. Your Teams app should be fixed upon relaunch and ready to operate smoothly again without staggering interruptions.
