Tip: If you’re a newbie Mac user, it’s easy to get confused with all of the different Mac stuff out there. You’re not alone. I didn’t understand my Mac at all, when all of a sudden it would crash and I had to restart. That was my first reaction. Now that I’ve mastered the various ways on how to clean my Mac, I don’t have these problems anymore.

Tip: It’s very easy for a novice Mac user to become ambivalent about all things Mac. That’s why it’s highly recommended learning more about this exciting Mac world here first before getting started with Mac cleaning and speed tweaks. You should be aware of the fact that is mojave faster than high sierra Mac OS has existed since the 80s. You should also keep in mind that older Macs may be affected by bugs, which can cause slowdowns and decreases in speed. There are many simple steps that you can do to fix these problems.

Tip: When cleaning your Mac, one of the most important things to remember is not to remove or uninstall your favorite and regularly used programs. It creates a lot unnecessary space in the main memory. This empty space takes away your Mac’s ability to make quick work of the items in the main memory and slows it down. In order to improve my Mac’s speed, I remove all non-essential apps. My Mac registry doesn’t need to be cluttered with unnecessary data.
