In this hands-on training session, we’ll show you how to spring clean your Mac to improve overall performance. You’ll learn how to tell what condition your machine is in and how to optimize your Mac. We’ll talk about the things that slow down your iMac or laptop, and use several tools including Disk Utility to fix any problems, and Disk Inventory X to clean up large files.
The class will be recorded and saved in “My Class Recordings” for you to review at your convenience!
Take this class if your Mac is old and running slow, but you’re not quite ready for a new one, and if you often see the “spinning beach ball of doom.” It’s also a great class for people who just got a new Mac and want to be proactive about keeping their machine in good shape.
