How to Clear SharePoint Designer (SPD) 2010/2013 Cache

This is a quick tutorial covering how to clear SPD 2010/2013 Cache. Clearing the cache will remove any of your past connection history as well provide you a “clean state” to work from.  The cache is not even cleared after doing a reinstall, so this really is the only way to clear it.SharePoint Designer has a dirty little habit of caching files, including say the XML/XSLT, JS and CSS you might be working with on your site.

Procedure:-

  1. Close SharePoint Designer.
  2. Delete everything at %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WebsiteCache
  3. Delete everything at %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Web Server Extensions\Cache
  4. Go to SPD2013 options –> General –> Application Options –> Uncheck the “Cache site data across SharePoint Designer sessions”.

Start again SPD.
