    This issue might can come up if there is some problem if the application got stuck with something. Now this problem can be resolved by a simple restart. If not just follow the below workaround,

    STEP 1: Select the Apple icon from the top left of the screen in your Mac.

    STEP 2: Select the application which says “Force quit” from the options which are there.

    STEP 3: Now from the list shown -> Search for the “Finder” application.

    STEP 4: Select the Relaunch button to launch it again without any problem.

    Troubleshoot:

    1. Close the finder.

    2. Relaunch the finder.

    3. Check the finder working or not.

    4. Else restart and repair the disk permission.

    hello sir.

    I think your current issue is due to the some temporary problem into your mac device.

    So my suggestion to you is that you simply have to relaunch the finder apps on your mac device.

    You can do it as follows::::::::::::::>>>>>>>>>>>

    turn on your mac device first of all.

    Then tap on the top left side of the screen of your mac device.

    There you have to tap on the options given there.

    Here select the apps under the name finder.

    Then tap on the options under the name relaunch given there.

    That's all.

    Thank you.
