Slow MacBook Pro after updating OS

Hi, I have had my Apple MacBook Pro for a couple of years and I always kept the same OS that came with the Mac. Recently I decided to update to Mac OS Catalina but found that this OS was not compatible with a game I wanted to play on steam. I decided to downgrade to OS Mojave and it has made my laptop super slow now even tho the laptop is empty except for steam which I have reinstalled. Does anyone have any advice/ tips on how to make my laptop run at normal speed again??

Surely somebody has encountered a similar problem before

How did you downgrade it to Mojave was it a complete refresh install?

fresh install

Hi Bremner. I used a video I found on youtube and deleted Catalina using the terminal and installed Mac OS Mojave from a usb stick. I created an additional partition on my Mac. I got the video from the youtube user called HowToISolve. Thanks for your reply

If you hold down the option key when you start the machine how many drives does it show and what are they called

When I start the Mac up and push Alt it shows 3 drives: Macintosh HD_data, Macintosh HD and Mac OS Mojave partition. The Mojave partition I created myself and is a 100GB in size. Thanks for your reply!

Can you boot from the Mac HD drive as well at the Mojave drive?/

If I try to boot from the Mac HD Drive it just keeps restarting the Mac after a couple of seconds and doesn't boot up. The Macintosh HD_Data drive it boots it to OS Catalina which I thought I had deleted. Cheers for your reply!
