I've been looking around to try to find a solution but so far I haven't found anyone that had my exact issue. First my problem was that when using Chrome maximized (what i mean here is that it was in the second screen that you access with the three finger slide gesture) the screen would keep switching back to screen one (the screen with the dock). I thought this was the only problem, but then I opened finder and found that it would keep closing and then would pop back up a few seconds later.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:


    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)


    ☞ In the Finder, select Go Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.


    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.


    Step 1


    Make sure the title of the Console window is All Messages. If it isn't, select All Messages from the SYSTEM LOG QUERIES menu on the left. If you don't see that menu, select

    View Show Log List

    from the menu bar.

    Enter the name of the crashed application or process in the Filter text field. Select the messages from the time of the last crash, if any. Copy them to the Clipboard (command-C). Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).


    When posting a log extract, be selective. In most cases, a few dozen lines are more than enough.

    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.


    Important: Some private information, such as your name, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.


    Step 2


    In the Console window, look under User Diagnostic Reports for crash reports related to the crashed process. The report name starts with the name of the process, and ends with ".crash". Select the most recent report and post the entire contents — again, the text, not a screenshot. In the interest of privacy, I suggest that, before posting, you edit out the “Anonymous UUID,” a long string of letters, numbers, and dashes in the header of the report, if it’s present (it may not be.) Please don’t post shutdownStall, spin, or hang logs — they're very long and not helpful.

    That kind of crash is often caused by "Google Drive." If it's installed, I suggest you remove it according to the developer's instructions. You may need to boot in safe mode to do so. Back up all data before making any changes.
