Hi in today’s tutorial I’m going to show you little tips on how to clean your Mac on everything I’m going to show you today is free so there’s nothing that you’re going to have to pay for basically these are simple ways to clean your Mac keeping it optimize and fast and also making sure that hard drive space is not being used up by cache files and log files that have gotten blown up over time.
And you really can’t see them unless you kinda dig down deep into a whole bunch of folders so I’m gonna show you little tips on how to find those log files those cache and also how to simply keep your computers random access memory or virtual memory as clean and as available as possible so that your applications will run faster and is not sluggish while you working so the first thing we’re gonna talk about is how to clean your memory.
So when I’m speaking about memory I’m talking about random access memory and one of the applications that I recommend for this which I’ve been using and I use actually throughout the day as I’m working is something called memory clean II will put a link to this in the comments area of this tutorial but you can download it for free here or you can get it in the Apple Store which it’s also free and when you download it just install it.
From the Mac App Store like any of the other apps install into your Applications folder look for the application called memory clean but eventually after it installs will put a little item up here this little clock item that will show you that you can clean I your memory from this little area so it makes it very available it also shows you how much memory you have available and if your memory goes in the red over here it usually means you probably need.
To clean it a call for this program is you actually do not have to restart your computer you can clean your memory or throughout the day so when is there a big memory hog that happens while you working you might ask one of the ways is when you’re in photoshop and you have done a lot of retouching in Photoshop and now that you’ve done with it you’re not really going to use Photoshop for lets say the next 2 hours but meanwhile there’s a whole bunch of cache that is.
Space that is kinda being taken up by that program so a nice way to clean it would be using a program such as this and it’s free so all you do is come up here click on it and then you hit this little blue button called clean memory as you can see it’s going through the process so we were at shoot gigabytes let’s see if we get any more available I actually cleaned up before the tutorial so we won’t get too much more by Albert see what if we get a little bit more than 2.3.
And here we go almost and its 88 percent nineb_ and so done and the in and look at that I doubt if you could buy as memory back your ex you now met 3.4 now people working now with interesting about this is really fall is when I get it earlier I only have one 165 available so imagine I went from 1.65.
Mac PC Computer Tips How to Delete Cookies Clean Your Computer
If your computer is running slow, one of the problems could be that your hard drive is filling up. Hi, I’m Charles Stewart Jr, and I’m going to teach you how to delete your cookies and clean up your computer. One of the easiest things to do is delete cookies. And what cookies are, they’re little pieces of information that are stored in your computer so when you go to a website, that website knows that you’ve visited it before, and it like helps keep track of you as an individual, so they can tailor ads or you know specific sayings you set up on your computer, which is great if they’re sites that you go to a lot, but if you just go to a site once, it’ll store that information and over a couple years.
Or even over six months of not deleting cookies, you’ll build up a lot of information and that starts to hog space on your computer. And one of the big things with your computer is if you have a hard drive, as it starts to fill up, your computer takes longer to find things, so that slows down your computer. So to delete cookies is fairly easy. If you’re running Internet Explorer, you just go up to tools, and then go to Internet Options, and then right on the front page there’s a button that says delete cookies. And you’ll just go over here, delete cookies, and it says delete all cookies in a temporary internet folder, and you hit okay. And then that’s it for the cookies part of it The next thing.
You want to do is clean up, as your computer starts to, over time, it’ll in other areas, start accumulating data that you don’t need anymore. So you’ll want to go to the hit the start button and go to my all programs, and then go to accessories, and then you’re going to look at system tools, and you’ll see something that says disk cleanup. You’ll want to click on that, and sometimes it’ll take a couple minutes as it’s scanning your hard drive for information. Depending on how full your hard drive, it could take fifteen minutes or longer. Since I don’t really have a lot on here, it did it fairly quick. Now that it’s showing you that I’ve got this much in temporary internet files and how much is.
In my recycle bin. And it’s basically letting you know these are files that you can get rid of to clean up your computer, and then you just hit okay, and it’ll ask you are you sure you want to do this and you say yes. And then it’s going to go through and delete all those files and then that’ll help clean up some of the stuff that you don’t need anymore. And then another thing to do is just go through it yourself and look through the computer and find files or folders or things you’ve downloaded that you might not need anymore and delete those. And if you do enough of that, you should start to notice you should start to notice an increase in performance on your computer. And another great thing.
To do is just add more RAM ’cause that could speed up your computer as well. And that’s how to delete cookies and clean up your computer.
