Makes it simple for macOS users to scan for, detect and remove junk files from their computer, delete no longer needed items and more
Although, usually, installing and uninstalling apps on a Mac is reduced to simple drag and drop actions (to the Applications folder or to the Trash, respectively), there still are things that happen in the background.
Moreover, most apps will place additional files and folders which are required for them to work properly in the Library directory, but also in other locations on your Mac.
Unfortunately, these items are left behind when you remove the app: since there are no longer used, they unnecessarily take up space, and even slow down you Mac’s performance.
Scan your Mac for junk files
CleanMyMac is an user friendly Mac app that comes with a stylish design and helps you detect the junk files, but also user and system cache / log files, broken preferences or login items, apps that have universal binaries (you can remove the executable that is not suitable for your architecture), language files (you can keep only the one you actually employ).
Furthermore, CleanMyMac can find large and old files that you have not used in a long time, various extensions installed on your Mac, and can help you clean up your iPhoto Library.
Correctly uninstall apps and take a closer look at all installed plug-ins
The CleanMyMac Uninstaller function detects all the applications installed on your Mac, but also the files associated with a certain installation. As a result, if you delete and app using CleanMyMac, you can make sure that no junk files are left behind.
Last but not least, CleanMyMac is able to identify all the plug-ins, widgets, and Preferences panes installed on your Mac. The items are organized by type (Contacts, Dictionaries, iTunes, Login items, QuickLook plug-ins, and more) and you can easily choose to remove the ones that you do not need.
Intuitive solution for keeping your Mac clean
All in all, finding your way around the CleanMyMac user interface is not too hard due to its streamlined interface that provides access to all functions via the main window.
However, note that all the files that will be removed must be selected by the user: make sure that you actually want to delete them because, if you send essential items to the Trash, you might render your Mac unusable.
Clean, optimize, and maintain your Mac with the all-new CleanMyMac 3. It scans every inch of your system, removes gigabytes of junk in just two clicks, and monitors the health of your Mac.
Your Mac deserves its own cleaning genius
CleanMyMac 3 shows you what to clean, you just have to choose when. It scans everything on your Mac, including your Mac’s system, iTunes, Mail, iPhoto, Trash bins, and even old folders that have been secretly avoiding you. Plus, it knows exactly what can be safely cleaned from your Mac and what can’t. Almost like it’s got a brain or something.
A System for cleaning yours up:
When’s the last time you used one of your apps in Swahili? What about Tetum? That’s what we thought. And, there’s more than just language files that are wasting space on your system. CleanMyMac 3 lets you get rid of all the added extras on your Mac, without the worry of removing a critical file.
Mail is a lot heavier than it looks:
Each and every attachment you receive in Mail, from PDFs to signatures, get saved to your Mac. Know what that amounts to? A lot. Plus, if you want to manually clean out those gigabytes of attachments, you’d have to crawl through your entire mailbox searching for every single paper clip. Save yourself the trouble — CleanMyMac 3 is happy to take care of it for you.
Bring old files out of the depths:
Use CleanMyMac 3 to discover all the old files you’ve forgotten about on your hard drive. It scans folders and disk drives to show you the files that haven’t been opened in a long time. Why hang onto stuff you never use? Let CleanMyMac 3 gather it all together, and then you decide what’s worth keeping.
Most homes have more than one trash bin:
Macs do too, and CleanMyMac 3 empties all of them with just a click. It finds all your Trash bins: external drive trashes, iPhoto trash, Mail trash, and other app-specific trashes — and then empties them all out. So tonight, it’s your turn to take out the garbage. But luckily, all it takes is a click.
Trim gigabytes off your photo library — without losing a single picture:
It’s not your photos that are wasting space, it’s the hidden copies in your iPhoto library. You see, anytime you edit or rotate a photo, iPhoto creates a duplicate of the original and hide it for safe keeping. This means gigabytes of useless copies. CleanMyMac 3 cleans out all of them without harming any of your photos.
