requires enough RAM to fetch information pertaining to every icon so that it
can load them during startup. The time required to load so many icons will
delay the startup time of your mac.
If you need quick access to files, organize your data in
folders and name them appropriately. It is the best way to save and retrieve
files. Restrict the number of icons on your desktop to maximum of 20 to
experience faster loading time. Another important reason why your mac responds
slowly is because of the number of applications that load during startup. If
you have many applications lined up in your Login items then, it will take
longer time for your mac to come to life. Go to System Preferences->Users
& Groups to check the applications that are loading during startup. It is
highly likely that you will find many unwanted apps listed in the Login items.
Software installations automatically inject their applications to start during
loading so that the app is available when the user logins. In reality, users
don’t need all apps to be running when they login. Some of these applications
will be used rarely and hence it is good to remove them from Login items.
Last but not the least, you can also speed up your MacBook
pro by going in for a 1TB SSD for MacBook Pro. Though
expensive, a 1TB SSD will help your Mac work faster by about 40% to even 60%
higher speeds than before!
