Turning off the Google Chrome cache

article #514, updated 1665 days ago

Add the following to all shortcuts, before the %U:

--disk-cache-size=1

and also add the above to this registry key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ChromeHTML\shell\open\command

On lower-powered PCs, CPU not necessarily RAM, this can prevent Chrome from locking up the PC to do cache cleanup. And it does speed up Chrome a lot — in fact, as long as one has 2G RAM or so, this seems like a good idea in general.
