I would like to change Safari Safe List of type files which open immediately after download. Any ideas how?
One way is to use Hazel. I tried using it and it worked smoothly. However, Hazel isn't free ($25).
The second solution is to use Automator which is part of Mac OS X.
However, using Automator didn't quite work. Some of the mp4 files did open, but for unknown reason some didn't.
Also I'm not sure if Automator has to open the files as soon as they are downloaded, or there is a time frame which it could take to open them. Maybe some one more experiences with Automator could elaborate on this.
Here is a how to create and use an AppleScript to open .lyx files:
Open AppleScript file named
copy the file to
Note: I didn't have this folder, so I created both
Now, go to
List should appear and contain
Now you're good to go - whenever you'll download lyx file it should open automatically when ever you download it.
NOTE: If you want to open another file type, simply change
NOTE II: If you want several types use:
Or just stop Safari from opening ANY files automatically by Preferences > General last checkbox "Open "Safe" files after downloading"...
