Any available updates to macOS or any Apple apps

are available in the Mac App Store.

Should you better identify the build model year and specification of your Mac mini

computer, then others who read through here and consider researching a fair reply

may be able to waste their personal time and online resources in a better cause.


What is your Mac's present operating system? + Hardware configuration specs?


If your computer is having performance issues, then do not upgrade to a later OS

because it would only get worse. If the hard disk drive is full of stored or saved

excess, get an externally enclosed storage drive and back up that excess. By so

doing, you may be ready to clear that from the computer's limited internal storage.


A tune-up? I often run my G4 Mac Mini 1.5GHz PPC for 50-60 days at a time w/o

restarting. Sometimes a restart in 'Safe mode' can help it run better. In my older Mac

it also may benefit from repairing disk permissions, and a restart from Safe mode.


Use safe mode to isolate issues with your Mac - Apple Support

support.apple.com/en-us/HT201262


The longest duration any of my older PPC G4 Macs ran without restart: 300 days.

(Security updates and other parts require restart to install, when available.)


So please detail the configuration involved and its specifications. How big is the

internal storage hard drive and how full (capacities used vs. free) also how much

chip RAM is installed? Have you gotten the free Etrecheck report generating app

and learned how to use it? ~ and... are there issues with your web browser?
