Lazy remove cached favicons in Chrome GitHub

It is very cumbersome sometimes to find that you cannot update the favicons on your favorite website when using Chrome.

This script removes the file where Chrome caches the favicons on Windows. It needs to be run in PowerShell as a normal user.

Tested on Window 10 PRO x64.

# close all the Chrome windows before running this from PowerShell
Remove-Item -Force "${HOME}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Favicons"

That's all, folks!
