I recently got my MacBook Air, and I'm pretty new to all this stuff. So please bear with me


I got the MBA abotu 3 weeks ago and I haven't downloaded much on it. I've downloaded Skype, Messenger, Pages, and a couple games.

I went to go check out how much storage I have left in general and I see that "Other" on my MBA takes up 12.62gb!


I am wondering what this "other" could possibly be! And why is it taking so much of my storage. I know that the software or whatever takes up about 6gb but that's already accounted for because my storage says ____/59.81gb. Can someone please help me with this? and how can i get rid of whatever is taking so much space in this "other" section of storage.

Thank You :]
