Can't Unlock File Mac: What You Should Know

Press enter, and type in the file path. 3 Dec 2023 — Click your Admin password and your admin password, then type in the file path you want. You should be able to see it now. Now, simply type in an administrator password, and the unlock file should be unlocked. Dealing with Locked Files on a Mac — Jeff The easiest way to check if a file is locked is to simply use a search-and-replace function: To search the file names that can be unlocked with the Apple Security Key, type in one of the following commands: #search “” Searching for these files and their related files will help you identify any locks on those files. Dealing with Locked Files on a Mac — Jeff I'd recommend giving these file paths a try and writing down the file path and admin password for each file. And when you're ready to use your administrator password on a locked file, you'll be ready to use this function with just a few simple steps. You may have to use the same Apple Security Key code number that you used to unlock the lock. Also, do not write down the password, instead write down the code number for the Apple Security Key function that you want to use. Dealing with Locked Files on a Mac — Jeff 8 Nov 2023 — I've found that using a non-Apple security key is sufficient for me and I get a little more “glue” to the “keychain”: 1. Click the lock icon in the lower-right of the screen. 2. Enter your admin password. 3. Hit at the prompt. 4. Type the file path and admin password with the key and then exit the window. The file will then be unlocked. To see just the file path in the Finder, and without the key, type: Search for “‣[Path to file path]." (Note this includes both Apple Security Key files to unlock the file and Apple FileVault key files. I have yet to find that I need one of the latter.) You may have to click on your keychain item in the Finder, or on the folder you want to open, to access the Finder. You can't use the ⌘-click (or Shift-click) that you previously used to open the folder with a different name.
