How to use Find & Fix tool in MacKeeper

The Find & Fix feature scans all MacKeeper tools at once so you can fix all items in a click. Find & Fix is divided into Cleaning, Performance, Privacy, and Security categories — identical to the MacKeeper sidebar. Each category uses a specific group of MacKeeper features to scan and fix items on a Mac. Use Find & Fix for an all-in-one Mac quick scan, or go feature-by-feature for advanced functionality.

How Find & Fix works

The fastest way to check your Mac for items is to run Find & Fix. It quickly runs all the feature scans in one window and assigns a MacKeeper status once the scan is over. To check your Mac, follow these steps:


1. Open MacKeeper, and select Find & Fix at the top of the left sidebar

2. Click the blue Start Scan button at the bottom of the MacKeeper window 

(Note: If you click Stop Scan while the check is in progress, MacKeeper will not save the scan results)

3. When the scan is over, you should see your results, your MacKeeper status, and messages in the right sidebar chat from your Personal Tech Expert

4. For more details about your MacKeeper status, click the question mark icon next to the status name — you should see your MacKeeper status explained on the pop-up notification

How to fix items found on your Mac

Once you know your MacKeeper status, you can proceed to fix items found on your Mac. You can either fix all items at once or manually review specific features, like plugins.

How to review each item before fixing it

To learn more details and fix items selectively, do the following:

  1. Click Review below one of the four categories
