I am working on the latest MacOS.

By configuring System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services,
I attempt to open a terminal window directly from folder with shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Cmd+T following the answer How can I open a Terminal window directly from my current Finder location? - Ask Different.

However, it failed to work.

What the problem might be?


You need to click on a folder first so it is highlighted, then use your keyboard shortcut for "New Terminal at Folder". It will open terminal at that folder's location.

  • Yes, I click and select a folder, did not work. – AbstProcDo Dec 2 '17 at 6:42
  • Just to be sure, you don't want to actually open the folder, just select it. I just created the same shortcut name, selected a folder on my Desktop, used the keyboard shortcut, and it worked. What OS are you using? – Paul Brady Dec 2 '17 at 6:47

For me, it didn't work after saving it multiple times. Then tried restarting my system. Ideally, it should work instantly. But try restarting once, it may help.
