Help tips | Is your laptop running slowly?

Teachers and students are experiencing some sluggishness with their laptops. Here are a few suggestions if you are finding that things aren’t running smoothly.
  • Shut down (don’t just restart) your laptop every night. Use the Apple icon in the top left of the screen and choose “Shut Down”.
  • If Chrome is running slowly, clearing your cache can be VERY helpful. Here’s how:
    1. In Chrome, at the top right, click the 3 dots
    2. Scroll down to More Tools
    3. Click Clear browsing data
    4. At the top, choose a time range. To delete everything, select All time.
    5. The more you clear, the better. Check off those items you are willing to clear then click the blue Clear data button.
  • If your laptop continues to operate slowly, please contact the Help Desk. Be sure to tell them who you are, what year you are in and please be specific about what is not working properly.
