      You can try downloading anti-malware program and that should help to get rid of any PUPs, malware or outdated files and possible system vulnerabilities. Cleaning junk files might make a significant difference on the speed and performance

        OliviaRoss is right, mainly junk files and malware can slow down your mac. Aside from cleaning our your files, you may want to just sync your photos with iCloud so they won't take up too much space. You can also clear the cache: Launch CleanMyMac, then choose System Junk. Press Scan and then Clean.

          Clean junk files and app cache. this would make it run faster.

          Also disable auto-login app
