    Hello,

    When i click on the trash icon from the dock it will not open, any ideas? This has just started happening the past few days.

    I'm using a Macbook.


    Thanks,
    Katy

    What steps have you tried so far? Does it happen every time, or only sometimes? If you make a new user account, does it still happen?

    Did you restart or did it just let you in with the folder inside? Sometimes that recovered folder shows up in there after restart but yours is a recovered trash folder...interesting

    Might be the same though

    Bless
