You guys get an essential trick to Remove Mac Startup Programs with an Example. Startup programs and services are the real culprits that gradually decrease your Mac speed right from the beginning. When you press the power button to turn on your Mac, startup programs launch together when your Mac boots. Ultimately, the startup programs consume more than half of the processor and memory, and so sometimes, Mac starts slowly.

Moreover, after removing startup programs, you have to deal with login items that are entirely useless and eat up the processor and memory of the Mac. So let’s go forward and see how to remove the startup programs on macOS Sonoma/Ventura, which is privately slowing down the Mac. Within a minute, you can complete this process and boost your Mac without deleting anything from the Mac.
