If your Mac is feeling sluggish this tip might help.
Your Mac used to be fast. Now it’s sluggish. The problem could be your apps. They may be sucking up an excessive amount of your machine’s resources. Luckily, writer Matt Elliott with CNET has a tip:
Download one more app, System Lens. This app will examine the apps currently running on your Mac and tell you which ones are consuming too much power.
Apps are wonderful tools. They can keep you organized, balance your budget and help you slim down. They also consume a lot of resources.
If you have lots of apps running on your Mac, they could bog down what was once a fast machine.
The power of System Lens
System Lens helps users pinpoint those apps that are using more than their share of a Mac’s resources. The app gives all of it’s users’ currently running apps a rating: low, medium or high. System Lens also tells users how stressed their Mac is in general. If System Lens shows three bars, that means a machine is overloaded.
System Lens can help you decide which apps to eliminate or de-activate. If an app is gobbling too much of your Mac’s resources, you can decide to either close it or erase it entirely if you no longer wish to use it.
