➽Keyboard Maestro Folder View Macro

Keyboard Maestro has some granular control over window arrangement. Combine that with the ability to trigger specific menu items, I can create a preset view for just about any folder.

For example, this macro opens my Notes folder and displays it sorted by last modification date. I use a minor “If Condition” trick to turn off the toolbar if it is visible. The “If Condition” looks to see if there is a menu item named “Hide Toolbar” available. If it is, then the macro triggers the menu item. The Macro subsequently repositions the window and sets the Arrange By Date Modified option.
