Clear MIUI Launcher Cache For Smooth Running

MIUI hides all kinds of options and functionalities. Xiaomi not only allows us to customize the interface of its smartphones or add a fill light for our video calls but also delete and reset certain elements of the system so that everything works like the first day.

Probably all of you have experienced how, over time, the interface of our Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO, and in general, the entire system becomes somewhat slower, especially when navigating between applications or when entering and exiting the main screen of MIUI.

Generally, this slowness is caused by the MIUI launcher itself, becoming increasingly slower as time goes by. In addition, changing the wallpaper or simply moving applications from one side to the other gradually makes it not as fluid as before.

Every week I restart the MIUI launcher to improve the fluidity of my Xiaomi

After years of using Xiaomi phones, I have realized that the element that most detracts from the user experience, resulting in a less fluid interface, is the MIUI Launcher itself. Fortunately, this can be reset, something I do practically every week by following these steps :

  1. Go to Settings > Applications > Manage applications
  2. Once inside we look for System Launcher
  3. After that, click on Clear data at the bottom and then on Clear cache

Do not expect a drastic change in the performance of your Xiaomi, Redmi, or POCO, but rather a better user experience, especially over time. Doing this process every week or two will definitely improve flow.


If after clearing the cache of the MIUI Launcher your Xiaomi does not run smoother again, we recommend deleting all the data from the launcher. Of course, by deleting all the data we will lose the order of the applications on the desktop, as well as any other customization that we have made. I usually do this process approximately every month and in this way, I give my Xiaomi desktop a new look, either with a new background or a new combination of icons.
