I'm trying to create an Automator service which "receives selected files or folders". If I select a single file in Finder, then go to the Finder:Services menu, my service shows up. If I select two folders in Finder, I also see my service. But if I select only a single folder, the same menu says "No services apply".

Why doesn't the finder services menu recognize that my service is available to be run when only a single folder is selected? How can I run my service?

  • You can. I have written Services which open a single Folder in my Application. Without detail of what you have tried it is difficult to comment. – Milliways Sep 20 '14 at 4:34
  • @Milliways There aren't really many details to share because I've just come up with a default service, set where to receive files from, and created a "Run Shell Script" action to catch the files. – Michael Sep 20 '14 at 15:57
