Deleting site-specific cookies in Chrome

On occasion, the single sign-on authentication for a few of the systems I work with stops working due to an issue with the cookies stored in my web browser. The solution is simple enough; delete the cookies, and Bob’s your uncle. I don’t, however, want to delete all cookies, as that would mean that all of my logged-in sessions stop working. Instead, I want to delete the cookies for the site or sites affected by the issue. Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings > Advanced Settings > Content settings > Cookies > See all cookies and site data
    • (You can also access this by copy/pasting chrome://settings/siteData into your address bar and hitting Enter)
  2. In the Search bar, enter the address or name of the site that is causing you problems
  3. Remove the cookies you want to remove

While this is an annoying issue, this workaround has stood me in good stead for a good long while now. There are other reasons why you might want to do this too, of course – when would you use this?
