I can't open my downloads folder. It shows in Finder as a folder. When I click on it, terminal opens. That makes retrieving something from the folder quite tedius. Any fixes?
Hi Rob, this is a really strange one!?
Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions, see if you can open the Downloads folder in Safe Mode, reboot when complete, & test.
Just came across this online, and it fix it on my Mac mini. Paste this into the teminal, and hit enter
xattr -c ~/Downloads
Then try opening your downloads folder.
Thanks Foto Snapper, this fixed it on my Mac mini also!
