I always wondered why my brand new mac was running at the speed of a 12 years old mac, I restarted it, did tricks found on internet by every so often the lag would continue... I finally found the answer...
The only thing that can slow it down:
- If you use an old unsupported computer
- Its spotlight is indexing
- Third party process eating your CPU
- It has tons of junk in your user folders in library/cache, library/application saved states, etc. You can flush those folders manually.
So for the most part we can discard the first 3, as I assume you know them and tried to close all the programs. I will eventually create a script for cleaning up the mac, but for now you can open the terminal and type:
cd Library/ && rm -rf Caches && rm -rf Saved\ Application\ State
If the above code doesn't work and you don't know about coding, simply go to your Library folder and delete those 2 folders (1. Caches and 2. Saved Application State)
That will clean up the junk ✅
