Manage Finder Window's view

Is it possible with AppleScriptObjC to have access to bounds, background color, arrangement, icon size and all other properties for a Finder window ?

No — you can’t interfere with another app like that.

I suspected a little this answer…
(Was hoping there’s an exception for the Finder)

:wink:

Maybe not with ASObjC, and maybe not all of that, but Chris Stone (@ccstone) has published numerous scripts to control/set the Finder Window.

See the ASUL Thread:

Thank you Jim.

My question was only about AppleScriptObjC.
I’m pretty much familiar with the Finder’s dictionary.
