Microsoft Silverlight based web applications can use application storage for many purposes. They can store small data files (like custom settings), and large files for applications that have graphically intensive features (like games, maps, and images). Silverlight based applications can also use application storage for saving user-generated content. If you want, you can delete this application storage. This is how :
- Open Microsoft Silverlight settings. There are many ways to do so —
- You can open a website with Silverlight application, for example, http://demos.telerik.com/silverlight/. Right-click on any Silverlight based application and select Silverlight.
- If you are using Windows XP, Vista or 7, then you can also open Silverlight settings from Start Menu → All Programs → Microsoft Silverlight.
- If you are using Windows 8, then first open the Search Charm using the hotkey Win + Q. Then you can search for silverlight using the Search Charm. Click on the Microsoft Silverlight in the search results.
- Select Application Storage tab in the Silverlight settings. This tab shows the web sites, current storage and the quota of application storage for each web site.
- If you are no longer running Silverlight based applications from one of the Web sites, select the site in the list and click Delete to remove that Web site’s data from your computer. Click Delete all to remove the stored data of all the Web sites in the list.
