Additional things you can try to improve the performance of your Mac further
Turn off the “Genie” effect
As much as we love the window minimizing the genie effect, it comes with a cost of slashed speed. The more visual effects you use, the slower your device will be. To turn off this effect, follow the below steps:
Go to system preferences and then click on Dock
Choose scale effect in the Minimize Using field
Disable the Animated Opening Applications option
Disable browser add-ons
These days loading the browsers with unnecessary add-ons has literally become a thing. Though it can be helpful at times, be prepared to compromise on the speed. I highly recommend getting rid of unwanted browser add-ons.
Keep the desktop clean
If you’re like my mom, who likes to jam the desktop page with 70 new photos every day, then you’ll have the same result as mine – turtle-like speed. Try to keep the desktop clean and minimal with fewer icons and applications.
