Great work!
I have two questions according to later versions of your scripts:

Is it possible to keep and restore the folder's view mode (icons, rows columns...) and things like icon size etc.?

What about changing multiple folders at a time?

(Please excuse my bad english. I hope you understand what I like to say.)

This is a great little app. I went into the script to have it work with Path Finder. Now if I could only figure out how to get it into Safari. Nothing worse than some bone headed web designer thinking that a window resize on their site is a good idea.

Here my friend, you will like this application plugin if you hate window's resizing. Go to the developer of butler's site which is www.manytricks.com and you will see on the left side of the page a link for a SIMBL plugin named "Block Window Resizing." I guess you can figure out what the plugin does. Hope it helps, if not, let me know by responding to this and I will come back and give a few more ideas of how to stop pesky webmasters.

Better and better. My wish would be for it to open a window when one isn't already open. I would want an item sitting in the Dock. Say I'm in an app and I know next I want to go to Finder. Presently I click empty desktop space or Finder's Dock icon. As I normally keep Finder windows closed, being in an app and wanting to go to a new Finder window made just like I want it and doing so with but one click on the Dock icon would be pretty nifty.

This is a great script, but there is one little problem. It messes up the sidebar size when getting the size of the window so that when I use the script to set the window size, the sidebar shrinks to something smaller than I like.

Is there anyway for the developer to modify the script to handle getting the sidebar size as well?

Finder Size & Position Script 3.0 works as designed for me; sadly it resets Finder window view to Icon view. Bummer… as I have all of my Finder windows set to List view. Please consider modifying script to leave view alone. Thanks.

Also would like to see script(s) work when Finder Size folder is placed in Utilities folder.

Version 3 does not work for me. Get an error of window bounds.dat not found. Previous versions worked fine.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Frank Brancato? I have some suggestions for him.

As the instructions say, you must first double-click the Set FinderSize icon to create the first .dat file.

Bug or possible fix?

Can't get window 1 of application Finder." - Error Thanks for all your hard work this farI love it. but one essential thing is missing from the scripts. They need to be able to open a finder window if there are no finder windows already being displayed. You get the error listed above.

It would be cool if it could launch a finder window if there is none open. Could get rid of the finder dock item all together!

You have really complicated the whole thing. I suggest you learn more about apple script. This should only have been a one step thing with no instructions required at all.

Sorry you feel that way, but for me it is the only way I could get this result the way I liked it. There isn't any other application available to my knowledge that performs the the way this works for me. If you have any ideas to the contrary, I would love to hear them. I simply posted this so someone else in my position might be able to benefit as well. I have had numerous responses confirming that there are plenty of people that were in need of something like this as well. I am continuing to learn. I was just happy to be able to get this far and wanted to share it.
