HOW TO Eliminate unwanted files with CleanMyMac
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 com) scans your startup disk for old, outdated, duplicate and unused files you can remove to reclaim space.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.
