The beauty of CleanMyMac is that it’s designed to hunt out these files and get rid of them for you. Brilliantly, it doesn’t just go ahead and start rampaging through your file directories – its interface guides you through the process so you can see, at every stage, what is happening on your Mac. On top of that, it has some excellent utilities too. They will let you manage your extensions, delete applications and all their associated files, as well as securely erasing files. This app is a great one-stop-shop for keeping on top of files and folders that are just wasting space on your machine. Here we’re going to show how to get started with the CleanMyMac, so you can de-clutter your machine, reclaim some space and improve overall performance.
First, let CleanMyMac scan your system. You do this by clicking on the Scan button on the bottom-left of the interface. The top bar on the left will then show you the full extent of excess files.
2: Clean it
Take a look at the number of files and you’ll probably be quite shocked, not to mention impressed, by CleanMyMac. Hit the Clean button to start clearing out all the junk you don’t need.
If the files require an administrator password, you’ll be notified. Click on the lock at the bottom of the interface and enter your username and password. You can then continue with the clean.
Get rid of unwanted apps with ease
Once you’ve had a clear-out, use the utilities to do a little manual spring cleaning. This requires a little more thought, but can be very beneficial to the health of your Mac. The utilities are easy to use, which makes them a valuable part of this application, and you will do well to remember they are ready to be used when you need them.
2. Use the arrow to view the contents of the app you have dropped into CleanMyMac. You will see that all of the associated files have also been pulled in to be terminated, leaving your Mac free from any leftovers.
