5 Easy ways to boost your Mac’s speed

Has your Mac become sluggish? Is it taking too much time to boot or load websites? Different factors can slow down your computer. In this post, we have prepared various tips on how to resolve this.

Clean up your 登录物品

The 登录物品 list (also known as the Startup List) contains all the apps and programs that automatically start when you log in. Having too many 登录物品 forces your computer to work harder at startup, slowing it down.

You can remedy this by going to 系统设置 并选择 用户 & 组. 点击 登录物品 to see the list of the apps that open on startup. Highlight the apps you want to prevent from launching automatically and click the minus button underneath the list.

在安全模式下启动

Your Mac’s Safe Mode can be used to troubleshoot system-wide issues, including problems with particular apps. Booting up in Safe Mode also deletes system caches.

Cache files are temporary data stored on a hard drive to speed up various processes, such as loading websites or certain apps. Unfortunately, some of these files can become corrupted, which results in your computer slowing down. To bring back your Mac’s speed, you will need to clear the cache and delete temporary files.

Starting up in Safe Mode is easy. Just press the Power button and immediately after the computer starts, press and hold the Shift key on your keyboard. Release the key once you see the gray 苹果 logo and the progress indicator.

If you want to leave Safe Mode, just restart your computer. Make sure not to press any key once the machine starts up.

Upgrade to solid state drive (SSD) storage

An SSD is a disk storage system that uses interconnected flash-memory chips to store your data. It’s faster and more reliable than a hard disk drive (HDD), which stores data in a spinning magnetic disk. HDD has been around for years, but many new computers continue to use it. If your Mac uses HDD storage, upgrading to SSD will amplify its processing speed.

But before you proceed, know that SSD storage costs more than HDD. If you want the same storage capacity offered by your machine’s HDD on your SSD, be prepared to shell out some extra money. 另外, you can settle for a much smaller memory capacity and just upgrade to a bigger one once your budget allows it.

释放存储空间

Having too many files can reduce your Mac’s speed. To free up space, just click on the 苹果 logo located on the top left corner of the screen. Select 关于这个苹果 and go to the

If your Mac’s storage is nearing full capacity, clicking the 管理 button will give you four options:

  • 存储在云 – This offloads various content, including your files and text messages, to the cloud.
  • 优化存储 – This optimizes the TV app storage by deleting videos you’ve already watched.
  • 空垃圾自动 – With this option, all items that have been in Trash for 30 days will be automatically removed.
  • 减少混乱 – This lets you see the large files stored in your computer, and allows you to delete them manually to save space.

Update to the latest macOS version

macOS updates benefit your computer’s speed in several ways. 第一个, they contain performance enhancements that help your computer run as smoothly as possible. Second, they augment your Mac’s protection against cyberthreats, which can slow down your machine. Updates are free, so you should install them once they become available.

You can also configure your computer to install updates automatically. In 系统设置中,选择 软件更新. 去 Automatically keep my Mac up to date 然后打勾.

If you’ve tried one or several of these tips and are still experiencing sluggishness, it may be time to consider other options, such as trading in your old Mac for a new one. 但在此之前, let us help you explore other ways to improve the performance of your trusty machine. Get in touch with us today.
