Good morning! I'm trying to put together a quick list of ways to troubleshoot various MacOS issues and then prioritize them in the order that we should try first, since time is of the essence. Naturally, this would be better determined by Mac system admins with way more experience than me. This is what I have so far, can anyone help add to the list or tell me what I should move up or down based on your experience with what works best/most often? Thank you so much!

1. Run First Aid
2. Use Apple Diagnostics
3. Remove recent software/plugins, etc.
4. Disconnect all devices, add back one at a time
5. Remove questionable software (uncertified, third parties, beta, etc.)
6. Disable unnecessary startup items
7. Update OS
8. Free up disk space
9. Reset disk permissions
10. Check File System ("/bin/fsck -fly")
11. Force Restart and reset PRAM
12. Login issue – reset NVRAM and PRAM
13. Reinstall the MacOS
