We understands the frustration that comes with a sluggish Mac. To empower you with troubleshooting techniques, we present some quick tips in solving common macOS issues.

Fixing macOS Problem


Unresponsive app

When faced with frozen apps, force quitting may resolve the situation. Press Cmd + Option + Escape or navigate through the Apple menu to Force Quit. Reopen the app to ensure the issue is resolved.

Rebooting Your Mac

Give your Mac a fresh start by clicking the Apple menu and choosing Restart or Shut Down. For unclickable situations, power off by holding the button. Make a weekly habit to perform reboot to clear the memory and reload macOS.

Connectivity problem? Restart Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Regain internet and AirDrop connectivity by toggling off and on in the Control Center. Click to OFF on Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, wait a few seconds before click to ON again.

For older macOS versions, use the menu bar icons and select Turn Wi-Fi Off or Turn Bluetooth Off.

Update latest macOS

Ensure your macOS and app is updated to the latest official version. Update macOS by selecting System Preferences from Apple menu, click Software Update icon and follow instructions. For App, Open App Store to Check for Updates.

Identify User Problem

Isolate what could be user-related problems by creating a new Administrator account. Navigate through System Preferences, select Users & Groups, click the padlock to unlock and hit the + button. On New Account select Administrator. Use a unique username and password to create User. Switch to the new account and see if it encounters the same problem. This will help to determine whether your current account is causing trouble.

Safe Mode: Diagnose Startup App

Identify troublesome startup apps by entering Safe Mode. A stripped-down macOS version ensures a quick check of your disk for seamless startup. For an Apple silicon Mac to initiate Safe Mode on macOS, press and hold the power button during a restart or power cycle until the startup options materialize. Subsequently, select your startup disk, maintain the Shift key pressed, and click on "Continue in Safe Mode." For Intel-based Macs, hold down the Shift key as the computer boots until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

Optimize Storage: Speed Up Your Mac

Combat unresponsiveness by decluttering your startup disk. Delete apps, trashing files, and optimizing storage to keep your Mac in top shape.
