    Specs:
    MacBook
    Just restart the Finder.
    Or you could repair permissions.
    Or you could restart...or simply log out and back in again.

    anyone of those should work and fix it.

    every folder has its own little "gate" that you can't get passed with out permission. If one of those gates outa thousands is closed you can't open the folder which may effect other folders down the line. This one looks like a dock one.
