4 Tips for MAC Users to Improve Your Productivity


Foojee (which is pronounced like the apple Fuji) is an independently owned business that specializes in Apple products. Targeting the home and small business user, they seek to help you with issues like the spinning beach ball and that pesky message of there’s no storage left on your phone to take a photo.

Four Things Every MAC User Should Know

1. Restarting your Mac regularly helps keep things tidy. Macs can go weeks and even months without restarting, but once a week is the Foojee doctor’s recommendation.

2. Macs can still get malware. And that’s because most security threats today are web-based, like malicious websites that masquerade as well-known banks. Best practices are to only download from reputable websites and have anti-malware installed.

3. Your Mac can automatically install updates. Select the Apple menu, choose “System Preferences”, then go to the “App Store” panel (shown below) to automatically install updates.

4. MacOS Sierra, the latest update to the operating system for Mac, can now help you save hard drive space.

Click on the Apple logo, and select “About this Mac” and then select “Storage.” From there, you can click on “Manage” to see where your storage is being used.

Once you click on “Manage” you can then optimize your storage by selecting to store your photos in iCloud, Empty Trash Automatically and Reduce Clutter. All of these changes will help free-up your operating system.
