Is your Mac feeling slow? There is no need to use additional tools to increase your MacBook performance if so. You can increase the performance of your MacBook by using some of the tools built right into MacOS, such as when it comes to increasing the security of your Mac.
Reduce visual effects
At the top of our list is a simple trick. MacOS has many nice visual effects, but this can cost money on the RAM of your system and CPU if you have a small processor. The effects may make your Mac feel a little weird, but you can easily remove them. Here it is.
To get started, click the Apple button in the Menu Bar, and select Settings Preferences. After that, select Dock & Bar Menu. You will be able to open boxes for opening Animate applications, as well as Auto save, and unlock the Dock. Finally, open the box for Permanent windows in use and change the Gene effect to Size. You may want to turn off the clock in the dock, especially, to be safe.
Remove unused materials
Next up is the simple trick of just removing unused applications. Unused applications can take up space on your Mac or SSD hard drive for no reason, leaving you less space for photos and for other applications to store and cache their files. Deleting an application is not as easy as it is in Windows, although, follow the steps below.
First, click the Apple Menu. Then, select About This Mac. You should see Storage and Manage. Click this button, followed by Applications. Your application will appear in the list, and you can click the application, followed by Delete below to remove it.
In addition to removing unused applications, we also suggest using Apple’s physical storage monitor to delete your large files. Just click the Apple menu, then select About this Mac, then the next repository by Manage. There will be a link that says Reduce clutter. Click this to delete large files and apps from your Mac.
Modify or remove startup settings
Is your Mac taking some time to boot? The problem may be some startup applications holding your Mac back once you press the power key and log In For a better experience, we suggest removing the startup applications, to make sure you have a clean boot experience always.
To remove startup applications from MacOS, go to Settings Preferences from the Apple Menu, then go to Users & Groups. Next, select Log Items. From there, type any unwanted items in the list and then press the minus button to remove it.
After installing a major Mac update, or a security update, your Mac may feel a little overwhelmed. Often, this is because Spotlight finds you reconfiguring your hard drive or SSD. In some cases, you may end up stalling, so to maximize your Mac, you will need to manually reset it again.
To reset Spotlight, click Settings Preferences> Spotlight. From there, search for the Privacy tab. Click Privacy and then add the Macintosh HD to the menu – and then remove it with the subtitle button. The index will start and stop, and your Mac should be a little more flexible.
Update your Mac Software
This is a pretty obvious choice, but we also suggest updating your Mac to make sure it doesn’t work slow. Therefore, not every Mac model is supported by Apple. So, depending on the type of Mac you have, you may not see firmware and other security updates (known to increase Mac performance.) You can check for updates at any time on your Mac by going to the Apple Menu , select About This Mac> Software Update.
If your Mac does not have security or software updates, then you may want to update it physically. By that we mean go buy a new Mac device. The newer Macs are known to be more efficient and can be very affordable. We have a purchase guide for all types of Mac – M1 Mac, Macbook Air, MacBook Pro, and iMac.
Our final advice is one that is more technical, and something that is not recommended for novice users. However, configuring random memory (NVRAM) is a trick recommended for situations where Macs can behave. The NVRAM includes signal settings, time zone settings, speaker volume, and initial volume selection. Again, it is only recommended for advanced users, however, so try at your own risk.
Like Apple, you can reset NVRAM by shutting down your Mac and turning it on while holding Option, Command, P, and R together on your keyboard, then releasing it for 20 seconds. , you can release the keys after the second startup item. And on Mac computers that have the Apple T2 Security Chip, you can release the keys after the Apple logo appears and disappear for a second time.
Another trick is to configure the System Control Panel (SMC.) However, this is reserved for cases including sleep, wake, power, charging your Mac notebook battery, or other power-related symptoms. We won’t go into that, and refer to Apple’s help piece for more.
