    Before the Apple G5's there used to be a command shortcut to rebuild the desktop and clear all the rubbish that had accrued inside.

    Is there a simple one available for a macbook or do i have to spend ages running disk utilities etc?

    Hi Berry,

    Just done a bit of searching around for you, and come up with this so far...

    Looks like that's only available to Mac OS 9.0, Mac OS 8.6, Mac OS 8, Mac OS 8.1, Mac OS 8.5 - http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2344

    Not much help yet, what's the problem with it?

    I'm not a mac user but something must be eating the memory on your machine if its running slow. Do you have an application on there that checks memory usage at all?
