The cache on your computer — as well as your Xbox One — is used for storing data and accessing it quickly.
While useful for saving files, if your cache isn't cleared out on a regular basis, it can become bogged down from the growing amount of data it's holding.
If your Xbox One is running slowly or having problems loading apps, it may be helpful to clear its cache.
Here's how to do it.

How to clear the cache on your Xbox One
Similar to a computer, clearing the Xbox One's cache can help improve its overall functioning. However, unlike other consoles, there's no way to clear the cache from a simple menu. You'll have to get physical.
1. Turn off your Xbox One using the power button on the console.
2. Once your Xbox One has completely powered down, unplug the power cord from the back of the console. Don't simply unplug the cord from the wall's electrical socket — it must be disconnected from your Xbox One.
3. Reconnect the power cord to both the Xbox One console and the electrical socket.
4. Watch for a small white light to appear on the Xbox One's power brick (the rectangular part of the power cord). Once the white light turns orange, you can turn your Xbox One back on.
Your Xbox One's cache should now be clear, and it should run more smoothly.
