We all wish our favorite Apple MacBook could run as fast as they used to be when they were new. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen. The more you use a laptop and fill data in it, they start to get bogged down and ultimately performance takes a serious downturn. In this situation, you don’t need to be worried. There exist multiple ways to boost your laptop performance such as:
Make Sure to Clear the Clutter
Over time, you gather hundreds or thousands of old documents, images, and videos, applications, and music. This huge lump of data fills up storage and affects MacBook’s performance. Ask yourself – do you need to save this data? Those old pictures from the years ago that everybody has forgotten about? That application you downloaded to avail the free trial and then never used again? Increasing the available space on your MacBook hard drive is an efficient way to improve the performance.
Delete Unused Language Files
Many applications contain multiple language variants for users across the world. You just need to keep the variant of your native speaking language and delete the rest of the languages. There are several ways to get rid of these files, Monolingual is one of them. This app helps to delete unnecessary language files. You have the option to manually select the languages you want to keep, and the app will get rid of the rest.
Clean Up, Start-Up, and Background Running Apps
When you install an application on MacBook, how often do you require time to read the installation dialogue? Perhaps, you hardly even bother that section. You will be surprised at what some applications are asking you to agree after clicking the “install’ button. Many of them ask you to allow them to launch every time you turn on MacBook. This may not seem like a big deal, but these applications are using the valued system resources. To get rid of this unwanted startup application, go to System Preferences > Users & Groups > Login Items. Here you’ll choose the apps you want to launch on startup.
Repair Disk Permission
Repairing disk permission can help your MacBook run more efficiently. Open Disk Utility from Application folder and select “Repair Disk Permission”.
Shut Down More Often
Like us, your MacBook needs to rest sometimes for better performance. It also contains a few tools that it uses automatically to maintain itself. Some tools only run during shutdown and startup, so develop a habit to turn your computer off. It’s a great way to extend battery life and improve performance.
