I've never used a mac, but for starters. How old is the machine, does it have an SSD? How much RAM? As far as freeing up some space, I'd check to see if/where a MAC would keep temporary files, review/clear logs and simply uninstall programs that you don't use anymore.

Solid state drives really speed up a machine in my experiences.

I had such problem and I even didn't know how to speed up my Mac. Here are few tips, based on my personal experience:

1. Delete useless files from the Downloads folder.
2. Delete cache, logs, unneeded files.
3. Remove large or old files etc.

when Mac is running slow, I think the best thing to do is to update your Mac and monitor your activity. Reduce numeorous apps that you use. Foremost, learn to free up the space of your hard drive if you have an older Mac.
