January 2017: How to Make Your MacBook Run Fast




I once saw a parody video of "things no one ever says," and one of them was "I love buffering." How true is that? Nothing makes me more frustrated than to see that awful little hourglass or spinning rainbow wheel, letting me know my computer is taking forever to load something. Get rid of that stress in your life and keep your important files safe with tips ahead on how to make your computer run faster — and feel like new. 

  1. Organize your desktop: Create folders of what you use the most, and place any documents in them. Throw anything unnecessary into the trash. 
  2. Clean out the trash: People usually forget to empty their desktop trash, even though it could be a reason your computer is running so slowly. Delete it! Go through and make sure you're not losing anything important, and then clear it out for more storage space.
  3. Back up what you want to save: Whether you prefer to use the Cloud, Google Apps, or a USB, always back up pictures, files, music, and anything else that can clog up your computer. This will not only keep things safe, but it will also make your computer more of a working space and less of a storage device. Think of your computer as a desk, where you want to get work done, and not a shelf or drawer to store stuff on.
