About this 'Spring Clean Your Mac' Course

In this hands-on training session for Mac users, we’ll show you how to “spring clean” your Mac to improve overall performance.

You’ll learn how to tell what condition your machine is in and how to optimize your Mac. We’ll talk about the things that slow down your iMac or laptop, look for malware, and clean up large files from your hard drive. We’ll use several free tools to fix any problems, including About this Mac, Disk Utility, Disk Inventory X, and Adware Medic.


By enrolling in any LIVE class by Royalwise, you'll also receive a recording of that class as a free bonus so you can pause, rewind, watch, & rewatch at your own pace for maximum retention.

Each Royalwise class is recorded live, & an edited copy is published to the course page within two weeks of the recording date. A notification will be sent to you within your OWLS portal once the recording is available.

While you wait, be sure to complete all of the quizzes or questionnaires for CPE credit, download any notes or handouts that you may have missed before class, and get your questions answered in the class discussions forum.
