How To Increase The Speed Of A Mac

As time goes by you will undoubtedly start to notice that your Mac no longer feels as zippy as it once did. At first it may just be an almost imperceptible delay as you launch apps, but eventually every action that you perform may very well start to feel sluggish. While it is unavoidable that every Mac slows down as it becomes more dated, the truth is that much of that performance loss is reversible.

How To Increase The Speed Of A Mac

Assuming you want to increase the speed of a Mac, you’re going to need to know how to do so – and have the right tools for the job. As far as the latter goes Movavi Mac Cleaner will be perfect for the task as it has everything you need to restore your Mac to its former glory. To get started you need to:

  • Clean junk from your hard drive

As junk and unnecessary files pile up on your Mac’s hard drive it will start to slow down – and to reverse that you need to clean them out. Thankfully that is what Movavi Mac Cleaner specializes in doing so all you need to do is launch the software, let it automatically scan your Mac’s hard drive, then remove all the junk files that it finds by clicking the ‘Start Cleaning’ button.

  • Remove unnecessary apps that automatically launch at startup

If your Mac is slow to boot up then it is likely that there are too many apps that are set to automatically launch at startup. If you want you could manually remove login items in your Mac’s ‘System Preferences’, but with Movavi Mac Cleaner all you need to do is use the ‘Startup Optimization’ feature to disable apps that you don’t need.

  • Uninstall unused apps

Another way to free up more space on your hard drive and boost its speed is to uninstall apps that you never (or rarely) use. Again this can be done manually, but Movavi Mac Cleaner has a handy ‘Uninstaller’ feature that will also ensure no leftover files remain – while clearing out leftovers from past uninstallations.

  • Clear the desktop

Try to keep your desktop as clear as possible of clutter by moving any files that are there to some other location. Also make sure your dock contains as few icons as possible, as it can affect your overall system’s performance.
