Read this handy guide and speed up your Mac in record time with minimal fuss.

Ensure apps are up to date

It’s important to always keep your software up-to-date. Updates are often released by the developers of an app or program, and they can be crucial for security reasons as well as performance enhancements. There are plenty of ways to check whether you have the latest version available:

  • Check what OS version you’re running in System Preferences > About This Mac. If it’s not recent enough, update it with Software Update under System Preferences > App Store.
  • Open App Store and search for “iTunes”. Click on an item listed under Categories (or scroll down) that looks like “Music”, then click on Updates & Support in the left sidebar menu bar at bottom of page; this will take you straight into Apple’s website where all major updates are listed along with descriptions about what new features were added/removed etc., so no need looking elsewhere!

Clean out your cache

The cache is where your Mac stores temporary files and data from websites you visit. You can make a lot of improvements to how fast your Mac runs by clearing its cache. Clearing the cache will free up memory for programs that need it, as well as speed up your browser or other apps that might be using up some of this space.

What Is The Cache?

It’s basically like having an attic full of stuff: anything that gets created or stored in the computer will probably end up there at some point (like when you save something).

The cache is where all those things are stored until they’re needed again—and even then it may take time before they’re needed again.

You should also remove search marquis from your MacBook. It will help your browser run at the speed of light. You can learn how to remove search marquis from mac easily.

Use Activity Monitor to identify what’s causing your slowdown.

Activity Monitor is a tool that shows you what is using your CPU, RAM, and disk space. You can use Activity Monitor to see what is using up your CPU—for example, if there are too many apps running at once or one app is taking up too much of the CPU’s resources.

You can also use Activity Monitor to see what’s using up your RAM (random access memory). If you’re using Photoshop or another program that uses lots of RAM while working on specific tasks—like creating an image—then this will help find out why it’s not able to finish quickly enough.

Use the Keyboard Shortcut to Perform a Force Quit.

You can use the keyboard shortcut to force quit an application. To do this, press Command-Option-Escape on your Mac keyboard. This will bring up a dialog box that gives you several options for what to do next:

  • Force Quit Applications (this option closes all open applications)
  • Quit Application (this option closes just the current app)
  • Force Quit All Apps (closes all apps running on your computer)

Use Activity Monitor to Force Quit frozen apps.

  • Open Activity Monitor, click on the app name in the upper left corner of your screen, then choose Quit Process from the menu that appears above.
  • If it’s frozen, click Force Quit instead of Quit Process and then wait for it to finish running before closing out of this window (it could take a few minutes). If you’re still seeing an error message or something like “An error occurred while trying to close this application,” then check out our article about how to fix macOS freezing issues here: [link].

Empty the Trash

The Trash is where you put files that you want to erase from your computer. If you keep deleting them, they’ll end up in the Trash forever.

To empty the Trash:

  • Open Finder and go to Applications > Utilities (or press Command+Space)
  • Tap on Empty the Trash
  • Hold down Command+Shift+Delete on a Mac or Control+Shift+Delete on Windows (or just click “Empty” if done via keyboard shortcuts)

Manage Startup Items so fewer applications open at login

To manage startup items, you can turn off applications that you do not use. You should also turn off applications that you know will not run properly and force quit any of the ones that will not run at all. If a program is still open after closing and restarting your computer, then it could be a good idea to empty your trash so as to free up some space on your hard drive.

To manage startup items:

  • Open System Preferences > Users & Groups (or User Accounts if your Mac already has multiple users)
  • Click on “Startup Disk”
  • Select which disks or volumes are used by various applications in order to prevent unnecessary disk activity when those programs are launched again later on during normal operation (this may mean changing this setting manually every time there’s an update made available).


Macs are fast, but there’s no reason you should have to wait for them to get faster.
