Deselect Finder Selection

Deselect Finder Selection

For some reason, I had the urge today to have a shortcut to deselect selected items in the Finder. If you are used to using animation or editing apps, like I am, you are also used to having an easy way to deselect everything. Unfortunately ⇧⌘A, just didn’t work, as you can imagine.

The solution is this short bit of AppleScript:[1]

ignoring application responses
    tell application "Finder" to set selection to {}
end ignoring

Now only if there was an app that could execute an AppleScript easily via shortcut or keyword, right?

  1. What would be a world without MacScripter? It was down last Saturday. I was shaking!  ↩
