Easy tips for cleaning up your Mac

Over time, your Mac will probably accumulate a lot of dirt. Old apps you don't use anymore, data you don't use, for example from pdf scanner app, a desktop full of icons (you only use four of them)... you know what I mean. With more people working from home, the problem has only gotten worse.


Now is a good time to clean up your Mac by freeing up disk space and possibly CPU and RAM. Here are some tips to quickly clean up your Mac.


Optimize Storage

Open Storage Manager either from Spotlight (command) or by clicking the Apple logo in the upper-left corner of the menu bar, selecting About This Mac, clicking the Storage tab, and then clicking the Manage button.


In the Recommendations tab, you'll see some useful options like Save to iCloud and Auto-Unload Lesson. For example, the storage optimization solution deletes previously viewed TV shows and old email attachments when storage is low.


View apps and documents

Click the Apps tab in the left column of the storage app. Here you can see all installed apps and sort them by size and easily delete apps you haven't used in a long time.

Then click on the Documents tab on the left. There are several sections worth reading here, e.g. B. Large files and unsupported applications. Large library files (for applications like Lightroom or Final Cut Pro) are likely to appear here, and you don't want to work with them. However, you may have large old files and documents or programs that don't even work with your version of macOS that you can safely delete.


Desktop Management

If your desktop is full of icons, you can clean it up a bit. Right-click on any open space (tap with two fingers on the trackpad) and select Clear if you want to organize things neatly, or Clear if you want to separate them as well do it Use the Stack feature to automatically group files of the same type into a single label. Click on the image to open the stack. It can really clean up your desktop! Using


Cleanup Utility

Power users who really want to clean up their Mac's storage should look for third-party software like DaisyDisk ($9.99) or Onyx (free). These apps provide a simple and clear way to see everything on your Mac or any connected storage device or drive. They help you understand what you don't need.


It may seem silly to pay for a program that only helps you delete data from your Mac's storage, but disk analyzers are very valuable. It can be really enlightening to see exactly what's filling up your Mac's SSD drive.
