Activity Monitor is a powerful tool that comes with your Mac. It can be used to monitor your Mac’s performance, and to see what applications are using the most resources. Here’s how to open Activity Monitor on your Mac:
- Open the Finder.
- Click on the Applications folder.
- Click on the Utilities folder.
- Double-click on the Activity Monitor icon.
Once Activity Monitor is open, you’ll see a list of all the processes that are currently running on your Mac. You can click on any of the columns to sort the processes by that criteria. For example, you can click on the CPU column to see which processes are using the most CPU resources. Or you can click on the Memory column to see which processes are using the most memory.
You can also click on any of the processes in the list to get more information about that process. For example, you can see how much CPU or memory it is using, and you can also see a list of the open files and network connections that the process has. If you see a process that is using a lot of resources, and you don’t know what it is, you can click the “i” button to get more information about it. This can be helpful in troubleshooting performance issues on your Mac.
