Location of Cookies file folder in Windows 7 Pro 32-BIT

August 30, 2014 at 12:21:56
Specs: Windows 7, Intel i5 - Quad/4GB Ramm
I'd like to review some of my cookies, but I cannot find the "cookies" file. Do you know where it is and how to access it?

I'm using Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit.

Thank you.

Bob K.

If you download ccleaner and use the analyse function it will show you the file paths of all the file locations for your installed browsers on whichever operating system you are using.

Just click on analyse, not clean, otherwise it will wipe everything.

It depends on what you mean by 'review'. Finding and opening a cookie file may tell you the site visited but not much more. To actually understand their contents you may need more. This turned up in a google search for "read cookies":

You might want to check the other hits from that search too. Many dealt with just finding the files and some with enabling a website to view the cookies on a visiting computer so you'll have to sort through them.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.

Easiest way to find out would be to open PowerShell, and type:

If you want to save cookies from being deleted, once again use CCleaner.

The missing piece of information was what browser(s) you are using. However I run with others who said use CCleaner, which gives you control too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
