Speed up your Macbook

Speeding up your MacBook can be quite easy. If it is still running slowly then you will probably need to get technical help.

1. Clear your rubbish bin. If you don’t all those files are sitting on your hard drive taking up space.
2. Clear the downloads folder. You will probably find quite a few files you downloaded that you no longer need.
3. Check photos ,videos and music. There may well be files there you no longer need.
4. Check spotlight. When you are using spotlight (top right) you may see more than one copy of the same file. Remove duplicates.
5. Clear your desktop. Macs do not like a cluttered desktop. Learn to put things in your home folder, dock or documents folder. Run your Mac from system folders not the desktop. Using the desktop should be for the short term not the long haul. You’ll notice a difference once you take everything off the desktop!

Then give it all a nice shine with CCleaner!

Switch File Converter

I wrote a post about how to use Switch to convert audio files in Garage Band on your MacBook. Switch is a handy file converter for Mac or Windows and works very simply. It means you can play files on your iPod or phone or retrieve the audio files from videos you have made. You can switch between popular audio formats according to your needs because not all devices use the same format unfortunately.
