From there we can clear the cache from last week, in case it continues to fail we can delete the “cache of all time” that is from the beginning.

You can further go on and delete all the temporary files present on your device using some cleanup tool if available, if not then don’t worry I have got you covered. You can delete the temporary files without having to download any extra software.

Just hit the win and R button simultaneously. This should open up a small window with Run written on top. In its search bar type %temp%. Upon pressing enter a whole new window with lots of files will open, these are the temporary files stored in your device.
