When I open a new Finder window, i.e. ⌘ N I am unable to access the 'Go To Folder' option. (Either via the 'Go' menu, or ⌘ Shift G)

However, I've noticed the option is available within the Open dialog of another application (e.g. TextEdit).

Is there anyway to make this option available in a new Finder window?

OSX 10.12.1

It's possible the feature has been disabled. You can delete the override using the following:

defaults delete com.apple.finder ProhibitGoToFolder && killall -HUP Finder
  • Unfortunately this fails with: Domain (com.apple.finder) not found. Defaults have not been changed.
