How To Speed Up Your Mac When It's Running Slow

David & David explain what makes Macs slow, show you how to speed up your Mac, and debunk some misconceptions about what slows down Macs.

Macs can slow down for many different reasons. It's a good idea to check Activity Monitor to see if any application is using a disproportionate amount of your Mac's CPU or Memory. If an application or process is using a very high amount of CPU or Memory, that application is probably what is slowing down your Mac.

Your Mac also needs a certain amount of storage space to run smoothly. A good rule of thumb is to make sure your Mac has twice as much storage as it does Memory. So, if your Mac has 8 GB of Memory, it should have at least 16 GB of available storage space.

If you recently installed a thirdparty "cleaner" app, try uninstalling it. These apps aren't usually necessary, and they can often cause more harm than good. Leaving too many tabs open in your browser can also slow down your Mac.

One good way to speed up your Mac and keep it running smoothly is to update it regularly. You can check for macOS updates by clicking the Apple logo in the upper lefthand corner of the screen, then clicking About This Mac. Finally, click Software Update to see if a macOS update is available.

Finally, it's a good idea to plug in your Mac and leave it in Sleep mode. Ever since macOS Sierra, Macs have run maintenance tasks on its own. However, it needs RAM (random access memory) and battery life to perform those tasks and keep your Mac running smoothly.
