HOW TO Elim­i­nate un­wanted files with CleanMyMac

Mac Format - - FEATURE -

1 Run a Smart Scan CleanMyMac 3 (£34.95, mac­paw. com) scans your startup disk for old, out­dated, du­pli­cate and un­used files you can re­move to re­claim space. Scan time de­pends on the size of your drive and data, but it’s an easy, thor­ough first step to­wards de­clut­ter­ing.

2 Pick your tar­gets Af­ter the scan, you can re­move what the app has iden­ti­fied by click­ing Clean, or work through the var­i­ous data types in the side­bar. Of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est are lan­guage files in apps; you can re­move those you don’t use to re­duce the space each app oc­cu­pies.

3 Clear out old apps To thor­oughly re­move apps, se­lect Unin­staller on the left, se­lect those you no longer need and then click Unin­stall. You can re­move an app al­to­gether or re­set it to its orig­i­nal state. Re­mov­ing an app also deletes its sup­port­ing files from var­i­ous sys­tem fold­ers.
