Doing your first scan with CleanMyMac 3

Once you’ve finished activating CleanMyMac 3, it’s time to scan your Mac with the Smart Cleanup module:

    1. Click Smart Cleanup in the upper left of the application.

    2. Click Scan at the bottom of the application.

    3. Once it’s finished scanning, click Clean.

And it’s not just Smart Cleanup that works this way, but nearly all of the CleanMyMac 3 modules.
