Right now I have no idea what is going on but I, and others too, could probably use a bit more clarification.
You say ``in the window panel the sign of the pdf file is present but if I click on it it gives me basically nothing''. Which window panel? Is this in Finder or the Open panel in TeXShop? If it's in Finder I don't think the problem is in TeXShop.
You also have ``Initially I thought it could be a problem of "spaces" but it is not''. How do you know it isn't a Spaces problem? I don't use Spaces but others may know about this.
