1. Clean Up Your Hard Drive
Hands down the easiest way to increase the speed of your system is to clean up files and applications you no longer need. Empty your Trash, uninstall rarely used programs, remove everything that takes up your hard drive space for no good reason, like unnecessary language packs, logs, caches, plugins, and hidden files. All this, of course, can take a significant amount of time, especially if you have only a vague idea of where to look.
Movavi Mac Cleaner makes the whole process a lot faster and more reliable – just choose the required cleanup options, specify the details, and the program will do the rest. You’ll be surprised at how much space you’ll be able to free up.
2. Reduce Your Startup Items
Your Mac boots up too slowly? Chances are, it’s launching a lot of applications, most of which you probably don’t even know about. Managing your computer’s startup is a good way to make the system launch faster. Just head to System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items to see a list of programs that open each time you boot your Mac. Select those you want to remove and click the minus sign icon below.
The process is even easier in Movavi Mac Cleaner – you can just go to the Startup Optimization tab, click Login Items, and disable the apps you don’t need by moving the toggle switch next to them.
3. Clear Your Desktop
Speeding up your Mac can also be helped by clearing up your desktop. Try to keep the number of icons on the Dock as small as possible. If there are files on the desktop, move them elsewhere or just delete them so that the system doesn’t have to load them every time you start your computer. This will not only shorten your Mac’s boot time but will also speed up its performance quite a bit.
4. Update Your OS
Keeping current with the latest OS X version can also give your system a speed boost, so make sure your Mac regularly installs all the relevant updates. To do this, go to System Preferences > App Store and check the Automatically check for updates option. You can also check Install app updates to make sure all your apps receive the same treatment.
5. Add More Memory
If you still have issues with slow speeds on your Mac, upgrading your memory may be a good option. Consider buying additional RAM – this will pretty much guarantee faster performance. Though definitely not a cheap option, this can make things right when all else fails. Just be careful to choose the right type and amount of memory for your specific Mac model.
To boost the performance of your slow Mac with ease and precision, use Movavi Mac Cleaner. Just install the program and you’ll have access to all the relevant options for speeding up your system within easy reach.
