"Open in Finder" in dock not working

Hi there,
I have many shortcuts to frequently used folders in the dock, which I often use by clicking on "open in finder"to work on iits contents. Since the 10.7.3 update it stoped working. Even the "Show in finder" that can be used to show the apps in the Finder stoped working. Can anyone have an hint of how to solve this?

It's fixed over in this thread: https://discussions.apple.com/message/16092154#16092154
Simple answer: delete Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.plist and restart.

  • In OS Yosemite the search function in Mail, Finder, Spotlight- does not work

    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)
    2,6 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M 2048 MB
    OS Yosemite,
    Finder versión 10.10.1
    Mail Versión 8.1 (1993)
    In OS Yosemite the search function in Mail, Finder, Spotlight… does not work. Messages or documents with the search criteria are there and one could find them manually, but the search function fails to find them. Following advice from Apple Support (728965377):
    1. I applied an Apple protocol for adware removal (Remove unwanted adware that displays pop-up ads and graphics on your Mac); I had none, because I had formally utilized a similar protocol that I had found in Internet, actually an app that implemented automatically Apple's adware removal protocol.
    2. I rebuild the post boxes in Mail (Mail (Yosemite): Reconstruir buzones); It took a while but it functioned properly
    3. I re-install the System (OS X Yosemite: Reinstalar OS X); It took about 4 hours but there was no problem whatsoever with the installation.
    Afterwards I searched for messages in Mail, and documents in Finder and Spotlight, without any difficulty. The search function in all of them was working properly. But the next time that I needed to search messages or documents, an hour later or so, the problem reappear and a couple of new issues occurred:
    1. in app RagTime 6.5.2 (Build 1821), www.ragtime.de, the menu bar disappears (it is invisible), when one performs certain operations, e. g., calculating a value with a formula, whether it is in a spreadsheet or some other component (text, drawing, etc.). After touching with the cursor the menu bar is visible again.
    2. after reading an e-mail in Mail or copying an address, this is seeing as a floating object in the finder and over every application. There is no logical way to get rid of the floating object and neither copying or deleting or cutting it. It is not a big issue but nonetheless bothersome.
    3. In Mail, messages with Flag or in VIP contacts cannot be seen in the appropriate folders, only in the Incoming mail folder, together with other messages. It seems to me, this issue is part of same search function problem.
    4. The preview function within Mail does not show the attached documents to a message, whether it is in the IN, OUT or Draft boxes.

    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 and start typing the name.
    The title of the Console window should be All Messages. If it isn't, select
              SYSTEM LOG QUERIES ▹ All Messages
    from the log list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
              View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar at the top of the screen.
    Click the Clear Display icon in the toolbar. Then try again to re-index Spotlight. Select any messages that appear in the Console window. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message by pressing command-V.
    The log contains a vast amount of information, almost all of which is irrelevant to solving any particular problem. When posting a log extract, be selective. A few dozen lines are almost always more than enough.
    Please don't indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.
    Please don't post screenshots of log messages—post the text.
    Some private information, such as your name or email address, may appear in the log. Anonymize before posting.

  • Find my iPhone not working

    My son's iPhone 4s was locked a few months ago by some friends who were playing a joke on him.  They input the wrong passcode over and over again until it was locked indefinietly.  I had to restore the iPhone using a method I found online and got his phone working again.  I didn't realize it until recently, but his Find My iPhone app no longer works.  It is on and logged in as my Apple ID (although I have to continually put the password in).  Anytime I try to use Find My iPhone to locate his phone, it shows me that his phone is offline.  Even when I open the app on his phone and try to locate his phone, it says it's offline.
    I feel that this issue has something to do with the restore that I did.  I don't remember exactly HOW I restored the phone, but know I used iTunes.  I've checked his settings for Location Services and Find My iPhone...All are active and Find My iPhone is active on my sons phone. His phone is also updated to the most recent iOS software. The wierd thing is, I CAN find him or his phone using the Find Friends app.  He has a tendency to misplace his phone in our home and the Find My iPhone app is great because it allows me to send a signal to play a sound to help us locate it.  The Find Friends app doesn't have that capability.  Has anyone else had an issue with Find My iPhone not working after a restore?

    Usually Apple recommended the below steps :
    Why your iPhone (iPad, or iPod Touch) not appear in Find My iPhone?
    Here are some reasons:
    Your iCloud account is not configured on your device. Choose Settings > iCloud and enter your iCloud account information.
    Your device is not update. It needs to be running iOS 5 or higher.
    The date is incorrect on your device. Choose Settings > General > Date & Time to check and set the date.
    Your device has lost network connectivity. If you have access to your device, and it appears to have an active Internet connection, in this case enable and then disable Airplane mode or turn the device off and back on.
    Your device appears in Find My iPhone, but is offline, the reasons:
    Your device is powered off, such as when the battery has run out.
    Your iPhone’s cellular service has been terminated by your wireless service provider.
    Your iPod Touch, iPad, or Mac is asleep and not connected to a known Wi-Fi network. The command will be processed when your device is awakened and connected to the Internet.

  • "Open In.." function is not working

    Hi, "Open In.. " function is not working on my iPad since the first time I recieve it..
    it once worked twice, and it took a long time to load PDF file, but never worked again
    the apps list is there, but when I click the app, nothing happened.
    please do help,

    Try clearing Safari's cache : Settings > Safari > Clear Cache (and Clear History)
    Also close all apps completely : from the home screen (i.e. not with any app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of each app to close them, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.
    If that doesn't work then you could try a reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

  • The option to open a new tab is not working?

    The option to open a new tab is not working?
    I click on the little box but nothing happens?

    Uninstall the Ask toolbar and it should work again. There is a compatibility issue with the Ask toolbar and Firefox that prevents new tabs from being opened.
    There are a couple of places to check for the Ask toolbar:
    * Check the Windows Control panel for the Ask Toolbar - http://about.ask.com/apn/toolbar/docs/default/faq/en/ff/index.html#na4
    * Also check your list of extensions, you may be able to uninstall it from there - https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Uninstalling+add-ons

  • I have a MacBook, made in 2010. I can't get the eject function to work. I have a DVD in now and want to eject it and put another one in. Command-E, dragging it to the trash or Find-Eject does not work. Ideas?

    Hi there. Hear are some other options . Hold down for click on the track pad while restarting and keep it down all the way thru boot. Or use right click on a mouse. If it's stuck, sometimes sticking a business card in top edge of slot while trying the eject option can work.

  • Why does right clinking on link and selecting open in new tab does not work?

    Why does right clinking on link and selecting open in new tab does not work?
    It opens up a blank page. The only way to make the link work is to click on the navigation bar in the new tab and press enter to reload the link.

    Do you have that problem when running in the Firefox SafeMode?<br/> ''A troubleshooting mode.''<br />
    1.You can open the Firefox 4.0 SafeMode by holding the '''Shft''' key when you use the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut. <br />
    2. Or use the Help menu item, click on '''Restart with Add-ons Disabled...''' while Firefox is running. <br />
    ''To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before using the Firefox shortcut to open it again.''

  • Find My Mac not working for a non-admin account

    I would appreciate some advice, or comment, on what I perceive is "Find my Mac" not working.
    I use a Mac Mini (late 2009) to run my home media; it on 7/24, connected to a drobo drive and is running the latest Mac OX X Lion. I did a complete erase and install of the OS, and the recovery partition IS there.
    I use an auto-login account, but with no administrative privileges. There is no monitor, keyboard or mouse connected to it, but in case it gets stolen, I want to find it.
    When I log in with an admin account, I can turn on Find My Mac, under icloud prefs. When I relog into the normal user account, this preference is greyed out, and says "Needs administrative authorization".
    So, is Find my Mac running, cause I turned it on with an admin account, or not?
    If no, how do I make sure it is always running?

    These are the notes of the steps I took which finally got my MBP to appear in FMM:
    I clicked on the MBP remove device-> I took the MBP Wi-Fi off line-> I went to iCloud Pref's, unchecked find my Mac-> turned Wi-Fi back on-> went to iCloud pref's re-checked 'Find my Mac'-> went online to iCloud.com, selected the MBP, which had found it's location. I sent a message and sound to the MBP from the Mac mini, which instantly came up on the MBP.
    SO, eventually my MBP 'Find my Mac' is working.

  • Finder and Dock not responding to mouseover

    You know how when you right click on a file and mouseover the 'open with' option to get a list of programs that are associated with the file type?
    That stopped working on all of these type of menus, including the 'services' option that every programs top upper left dropdown gives you.
    Also, and probably related, the dock does not hide and seek anymore, unless I switch to a different space, then it works for a second and then stops coming out of hiding.
    It does the same thing when using the trackpad.
    It may have to do with the latest update or X11.
    Any ideas on this would be helpful.

  • I restored Mavericks using OS X Restore but Finder still does not work

    Mac Mini running Mavericks 10.9.5, 2.5 GHz, 4GB memory, etc
    I can login remotely via ssh, so I can see that my files and applications are all there.
    But the Finder shows an empty interface. No HDs, nothing in the Dock except Calendar,
    which does not open, no files on the Desktop even tho' I know they are there.
    "vi newfile" fails when I try to save using "w" or "w!":
    Error message "out of memory (file system full??)", and only an empty file is created.
    This is false as there is about 350 GB free on the hard drive.
    "ps" typically says:

  • Opportunistic cross-docking not working

    Hi All,
    We are trying to implement opportunistic cross-docking process. My understanding is that during the creation of the goods receipt TO the system looks for any open picking TO and accordingly directly moves material from 902 to 916 storage type. The following configuration is done
    1. For the warehouse opportunistic cross-docking has been activating by selecting option 4.
    2. Cross-docking relevancy has been defined for movement type 101
    3. For movement type 101, the 'Consider pre-allocated' check box is not ticked
    4. In the respective movement types 1 & 2 for 'TO creation' are entered as screen control in movement types 101 and 601
    5. No automatic confirmation for TO is set up
    The following transactions are now done
    1. Create a sales order with outbound delivery and TO created (not confirmed)
    2. PO with MIGO (we are not using HU and hence no inbound delivery)
    3. Now during the creation of the TO for the goods receipt, the expectation is that the system will look for the open picking TO and will cancel the same and then create the putaway TO directly from 902 to 916. But this does not happen.
    Not sure if I am missing some setting or some transaction needs to be done differently. I went through SAP help but it does not give more details on what setting might be missing.

    Hi Jurgen,
    Thanks for the link. But I had already gone through it and configured the system accordngly. The surprising part is that corss-docking is working for outboud documents i.e. if i create a TO for inbound first and then for outbound then while creating the TO for outbound it automatically takes the source as 902 and cancels the put away TO. However for other way round where the outbound TO is first created and then the inbound, the expectation is that reverse should happen i.e. the destination in the TO should be taken as 916 and original picking TO should be cancelled. However it is not happening.
    In the link it talks about points 5 & 6 which are only for HU environment and since we do not have the same I have not configured those. But my question now would be is it that opportunistic inbound cross-docking can only be possible with HU but not required for outbound. Else I do not see any other reason why this might be happening.
