Basically, I have this short script to "clean up" the desktop. This is the code:
tell application "System Events" tell application "Finder" to activate desktop delay 0.1 tell process "Finder" to click menu item "Clean Up" of menu "View" of menu bar item "View" of front menu bar end tell
The script works fine when there are no Finder windows open. However, if there is at least one Finder window, when the line
tell application "Finder" to activate desktop is run, it will make that window active, rather than the desktop.
What is the reason for this? And what is the correct way to put the focus on the desktop (same effect as clicking on the desktop image)?
