I found this answer on a website and it worked for me. I was able to get the open folder on my desktop:
1) Move the folder you want to unlock to the desktop
2) Open terminal (Applications --> Utilities --> Terminal)
3) Type: Cd Desktop
4) Type: Cd    where nameoffolder is the one you want to open (if folder name as spaces in it, rename to take them out first. There should be a space between cd and the rest, though)
5) Type: Mv * "${HOME}/Desktop"  in this step there is a space between mv and * and a space between * and "
You should now have that folder on your desktop. Hope this helps.
