Clear Chrome cache on Windows 10

On a brand new Dell mini running Windows 10 with SSD, Chrome became extremely slow. Each page load showed "Retrieving from cache"

I attempted to clear the cache in Chrome. This never returned. Ran for ten minutes. Seems to be pointing to an issue with the SSD itself.

Can manually clear the cache at

C:\Users[user]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

with Chrome closed. This is quite fast.
