enter image description hereUsing Finder and also xCode is incredibly slow, almost unusable, and when I look at activity monitor, it shows hardly any resources being used. How can I get my mac to use more resources? I'm using macOS Sierra 10.12.6.

  • Are any of those processes busy doing disk IO? In particular if the system has a non-SSD disk that can really make everything slow. – Ask Bjørn Hansen Sep 19 '17 at 6:07
  • @AskBjørnHansen I just posted the bottom image with disk i/o. I'm not sure if that is normal or not. – user2602079 Sep 19 '17 at 9:24
  • That's really low disk io. Either the system is super idle or the disk is super broken. :-) Is it an SSD? It doesn't look like much is going on. It's suspicious that Chrome is not responding. Is Xcode still slow if you quit all the other programs? Have you tried running "First Aid" in Disk Utility? If the system is on warranty or AppleCare I'd bring it to the store, though they might just want to try re-installing ... – Ask Bjørn Hansen Sep 19 '17 at 19:04
  • @AskBjørnHansen Chrome, Finder, and Xcode are always not responding. I will try the first aid now. It is basically unusable. – user2602079 Sep 19 '17 at 20:07
