    Question How can I/do I edit cookies in IE 11.

    Is there anyway to edit cookies in IE 11? I do not want to delete them all, just delete a few to test out a change in the access to a website. Thanks.

    In IE go to Settings (the gear) | Internet Options | General tab | Browsing History section | Settings Button. When the "Website Data settings" dialog opens in the "Temporary Internet Files" tab click "View Files". That will open File Explorer to your browser cache. You can then search or scroll for cookies.

    You can also do something with the Cookies in the free version of CCleaner when you click on the Options button.

    From the list select the ones you want to keep and transfer them to the right column so when you clear the cache, those will remain.

    During CCleaner's install there is an option to include intelligent cookie cleaner - I always uncheck this as I don't want anything left on my computer and when you revisit the site, you'll get them back again anyway and I've never had any problems revisiting sites after clearing them all at the end of each session.

    Thanks Sudo15. I actually discovered that aspect of CCleaner when I checked it out. I had forgotten about it- thanks for reminding me.

    No problem - I often forget about things but I blame it on age
