Is your Mac switching from full-screen apps back to your primary screen by itself?

Recently my MacBook Air started switching back to the main screen by itself while I was working in a full-screen Window. It didn’t matter which window: Tweetdeck, Screen Sharing, whatever.

This post fixed it for me: The Google Drive app is evidently updating something in the toolbar.

Fortunately it can easily be stopped:

  • Click on the Google Drive toolbar and select Preferences.
  • Untick “Show file sync status icons and right-click menu”.
  • Press Apply Changes.



No more ghost in the machine! For now…
