Simple Mac OS Maintenance Tips

These are some Mac OS tips I’ve collected. I’m posting them here in case you might find them useful and so they’ll remind me to keep my OS X clean and running smoothly.

  • keep desktop clean
  • close major apps before sleep (only time when I don’t put my Mac to sleep is when I travel)
  • reboot once per week
  • empty downloads regularly
  • delete fonts you don’t need
  • disable fonts you don’t use regularly
  • update software
  • keep iTunes library small
  • clean Safari stuff regularly
  • don’t install crappy apps
  • make sure there’s enough free HD space
  • put as much as you can on Dropbox
  • also: repairing permission don’t help much
