Path Finder: open new window

Recommended Posts


i tried a seemingly simple thing, opening and closing the active window in Path Finder. However ... closing runs smoothly with


on run argv
  tell application "Path Finder" to close every window
end run


however opening does not work:


on run argv
  tell application "Path Finder" to open new window
end run


Why is this, appreciate some help!

You should read the application's dictionary in Script Editor. The open command takes a file path (or multiple file paths):


tell application "Path Finder" to open (path to home folder)


You probably also want to activate the app:


tell application "Path Finder"

    open (path to home folder)


end tell
