Is Your MacBook Running Slow? Here Are Some Tips to Jumpstart It
Dealing with a slow MacBook can be frustrating (to say the least). While your computer may just be getting slower with age, there are also some ways to jumpstart your machine and help it speed up its functions again.
Tip #1: Restart Your MacBook
It might sound silly, but if you haven’t done this in a while, it may be time. Your MacBook does need to be restarted every once in a while, and if you’ve had it on for a month or longer, give it a little rest.
Tip #2: Clean Your Mac
In order to put an end to a cluttered hard drive and to really get a down and dirty clean, download Clean My Mac, which is a fast and safe cleaning program that will get rid of all the unnecessary crud. A lot of stuff you don’t need will tend to linger on your computer, slowing down your processes, and this can help. Clean Your Mac isn’t free, but it is worth the cost.
Tip #3: Update Your Mac
You may have been putting off all those updates for a long time, continuing to hit “Remind Me Later” or something else equally noncommittal. When you do this, though, you’re just making your Mac work harder, which will make all the performances slower. Take some time out to update your device (making sure all your essentials are backed up first), and you’ll really see an improvement.
Tip #4: Manage Your Startups
When you turn on your computer, there are probably a lot of applications that come up automatically. This can slow down everything your Mac does while it’s on so why not get rid of some of those unnecessary startups? Just go to System Preferences > Users & Groups and click your username. Click Login Items and find the programs you don’t need to open automatically when you start your Mac. Highlight them and click the minus button.
