Generating a Console Log

 How do I get a console log on a Mac?

 Console logs are able to give us vital information about activities that are occurring when Steam is launched. In order to get a new console log for Steam please do the following:

  • Exit Steam
  • Click on Applications > Utilities > Console
  • Click on Clear Display at the top to remove any history of messages
  • Type Steam in the search field in the top right corner
  • Launch Steam and login

After the error message appears from Steam you will need to save out the console spew:

  • Click on File > Save a Copy as
  • Save the file to a location that is easy to access
  • Attach the file to your support ticket reply
