Can't "Open in Finder" from Dock

After running OnyX to clean up my Mac, I find that when I click on a system folder such as Documents or Applications and get the display of folders that if I click on "Open in Finder" or any of the folders displayed nothing happens. It worked before so I must have changed something using OnyX. How do I restore the default mode of operation? BTW - Help was not very helpful in trying to resolve this.

Whatever the problem was, it went away after I did a Restart.

  • Can't open certain files from Dock or Finder Window

    Since going to OS 10.6 certain files won't open from the dock or by double clicking them in a Finder window. I think this may only be Excel files. Not all of them behave this way. I haven't found a pattern yet. My dock set up has Folders displayed as lists. When I navigate to a file in a list it should open when I release the mouse. Some do, some don't. Same with finder window, some docs won't open with a double click. They can only be opened by going to Excel and navigating from the File > Open menu. I often Save As on files as I build a new show on top of an old one. Probably an Excel issue. Any ideas?

    Nope. For example, one folder has two xls workbooks, two Word docs and a pdf. Only one of the xls workbooks won't open. All the other files open normally. When I try to open the problem xls workbook, whether from the dock or the Finder window, I end up in Excel, but without the workbook opening. When I quit Excel, the problem workbook started Excel, but didn't open.
    Update - I'm seeing something now. I use Excel to build "shows," I'm a production mixer for television. I went to one folder, five xls workbooks open fine, four do not. The four that don't open were modified (Save As with changes) with each "show." This was the first pattern I've noticed and only because that particular subfolder had the four workbooks with that relationship. The other xls workbook I described has the Save As file in another folder, but I'm not sure what the original file was. Note - those two "corrupt" files are unrelated, they had different "parents."
    What could I look for in the original file that won't open and passed that gene onto its spawn?

  • [bug] Can't open new desktop from mission control if dock is on the right side

    I can't open new desktop from mission control if dock is on the right side

    I recently moved my dock to the right so I didn't know the + sign would switch sides. I normally run around that many too depending on how large of a stack whatever I am programming is using.

    the whatspp massenger icon has disappeard from my screen i can only open the whatspp from search or find,How can i fix it?.

    The app is not gone, it is impossible to remove it from the device.
    Check all home screens and folders.
    If you are unable to find it, Settings > General > Reset > Reset Home Screen Layout.
    As a last resort, restore from backup.

    I can't open word documents from Finder

    If you mean "I can't double click a *doc file and make word open" then you highlight the file and do a command-I (or get info).  When the window comes up, change the "open with" parameter.  You can also right click and select "other"

  • Pages downloaded, but I still can't open iCloud pages from iPad. Says that I need a new version of Pages on my Mac

    For my Mac Pro, after I downloaded the new Mavericks OS, I downloaded the new pages. However, I still can't open iCloud pages from iPad. Says that I need a new version of Pages on my Mac.
    Please help.

    It appears that you are launching the old version, probably using an icon in your Dock. That icon is an alias & is not updated. You will need to go to your Applications folder & find the new Pages 5 icon & double-click it. Once it is launched, you can right-click on the icon & choose Options > keep in Dock from the contextual menu.

  • Can't Open ACR files from Bridge in Photoshop CC 2014

    I Can't Open ACR files from Bridge in Photoshop CC 2014.  I have uninstalled the programs, and all other versions of PS several times, but no matter what I do, I can't open a raw file I have opened in Bridge, in PS CC 2014. I have to click Open in Photoshop CC 2014 in Bridge.
    Also, on my workstation PC (Win 7 64bit), if I don't open PS prior to opening Bridge, then when I try to open a file from bridge it says it can't run PS on an earlier Operating system than Win 7!
    I have done exactly the same instalation on my notebook, same OS, and everything works perfectly - I just don't understand.

    Guys! This question was asked almost two months ago, and still no-one has replied? I'm still stuck, no matter what I have tried, I cannot find a solution. And please don't ask me to re-install AGAIN, I've done this several times and it simply does not work.

  • Can't open PDF file from iBook on MAC. error "The application "ACDSee Pro" can't be opened."

    Can't open PDF file from iBook on MAC. error "The application “ACDSee Pro” can’t be opened."

    Hi arewers,
    Do you have Adobe Reader installed, by any chance? If so, are you aware if it was the PPC or Intel version which you installed? In any case, for the time being, have a quick look in 'HD/Library/Internet Plug-ins/' using Finder and see if there's an Adobe plugin lying around. If there is, try moving it out of the folder and restarting Safari.

  • I can't open pages files from USB and iCloud due to : "The necessary file index.xml is missing".

    I can't open pages files from USB and iCloud due to : "The necessary file index.xml is missing". Original file is written on iMac (2014) and saved to an USB stick and then transferred till macBook Pro (2009, Yosemite) for editing. Then I shared the files by iCloud but I am not able to open them on iMac again. Niether can I use the USB stick to transfer the edited files back. I'm running Pages '09 4,1 (923) on the macBook and Pges 5.5.2 (2120) on the iMac.
    Håkan

    Pages 5.5.2 is extremely incompatible with even other Macs let alone the vast majority of PC and MsWord users out there, so not a good idea to leap into the fire with both eyes shut.
    After having done that to the first Pages 5 files, Apple has repeatedly done it to even the most minor point updates. Apple can't even anticipate its own erratic changes let alone what everyone else needs doing.

  • How can I open raw files from my Nikon D7100 in CS4 or CS5?

    How can I open raw files from my Nikon D7100 in CS4 or CS5?

    Andy,
    In the simple and short form, what happens with the ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) module is that it gets updated with regularity, to accommodate the camera mfgr's. changes for their newer models. That ACR works within the host program, such as Ps, PsElements, Lightroom, etc.. At a point, Adobe ceases to support older host program versions. When that happens, the user has a few options:
    Upgrade the host program version
    Use another host program, such as PsElements or Lightroom
    Use the free DNG converter, per Curt's suggestion. That is not host program dependent
    Glad that the DNG Converter works for you.
    Good luck,
    Hunt

  • Can't open PDF files from Windows Explorer on Windows 8.1

    Hello,
    after I've upgraded to Windows 8.1, I can't open PDF files from Windows Explorer (directly double clicking the file). The AcroRd32.exe runs in the background (2x !) as I see the processes in task manager, but there is no user interface visible. I have Acrobat
    Reader 11.0.06, the desktop version (not Metro). I tried uninstalling the Acrobat reader and installing it again but this didn't help. The only way to open PDF files is to close the AcroRd32.exe from the task manager, open empty Acrobat Reader from the desktop
    and then drag&drop the PDF file over that window. This is quite inconvenient. Is there a way to fix this issue so I can open PDF files directly from windows explorer?
    Many thanks!

    I had to install adobe reader, but   PDF's used to display just fine with IE, any idea what happened ?
    Windows 8.1 pro.
    thx

  • Illustrator CC 2014 can't open files sent from Draw.

    Illustrator CC 2014 v18.0.0 (just installed today, 11/6/2014): I can't open files sent from Adobe Draw. The files send from Draw OK, but in Illustrator—which finally opens as advertised—I get an error message, i.e. The file "Dog - Drawing 1.draw" is in an unknown format and cannot be opened. This goes for all of my work, whether created in Ideas then opened recently in Draw, or files created in Draw from scratch.

    Illustrator files (.ai or .pdf)  that I save using CC 2014 vs 8.1.0 on my Windows (8.1) machine on our network server. I try to open them on Mac.
    'The File "x.pdf" is an unknown format and cannot be opened'
    This may in some way be related to accessing the file over the server since when I transfer the file to my lcal drive I don't get the same error.  I still can't open the file but I get an error near the end of the opening process :
    "Could not read the file because the plug-in made an invalid request of the Photoshop adaptor"
    Again, I can open this file using CC 2014 vs 8.1.0 on my Windows (8.1) machine.

  • Can not open RAW-Files from Nikon D4 in Photoshop cc

    hi. i can not open RAW-Files from Nikon D4 in Photoshop cc. (Camera RAW 6.7) can you help please?

    ACR 6.7 would be for an older product, PS-CS5 or PSE10 or PRE10.
    What does Help / About Plug-ins… / Camera Raw… show in PS-CC for a version for ACR and is there more than one version of ACR in the Help / About Plug-in list.  Help / About Plug-in is what I’d do on Windows; I’m not sure if the menu path is the same on a Mac or not.
