All people want to have their computers working fast, without hitches. It's disturbing, and apparently irritating, to work with a Mac computer that has problems. A computer with problems on speed defeats a computer's performance. If you are looking for ways to have your Mac cleaned up, the first step is to know what to remove.
The most basic thing is to empty your Trash regularly. Unless you're unsure of whether you need a deleted file later, there's no reason to have a Trash full of files. But this is not the only trash you need to empty. Empty the trash in iPhoto, iMovie, and Mail, too.
If you are not going to use some applications, such as some commercial applications on a trial basis, remove them! Open your Applications folder (with command-shift-A in Finder), drag the unused applications to the Trash, and then, please do remember to empty the Trash.
Delete the disk image (.dmg) files whenever you download applications to install.
All web browsers store downloaded pages and files in a cache so that they can re-use those files (instead of re-downloading them) if you visit those same pages again. Clearing the cache could provide some free space. Clearing the browser cache can be done in the web browser's Preferences window (command-,).
Delete data that you don't need, or move them to an external hard disk, CDs or DVDs. To avoid wasting time in moving or deleting files or folders that don't provide a huge benefit, first take stock of what you have and find out which folders or files occupy a lot of space. Once you know which ones to delete, move them to the Trash (or hit command-delete), then empty it.
Consider archiving the email when the space is low for saving every copy of every email to the hard drive may not be an option.
