Reload

Updated: 12/09/2018 by Computer Hope

Reload may refer to any of the following:

1. When referring to the software on a computer, reload is synonymous with reinstall.

2. Also known as refresh, reload is a browser feature that provides users with the latest version of the web page. See our browser definition for further information about the reload button as well as others.

Tip: On any Internet browser, you can press the F5 function key to reload a page. If you don' have an F5 key, you may also press Ctrl+R at the same time. Pressing Ctrl+F5 forces a full refresh of the page, causing the browser not to load any page content from cache. Doing so can help ensure all content on the web page is the most current and up-to-date content.
