UNLOCK MORE OF YOUR MAC'S POWER!

Wouldn't it be cool if there were extra built-in automation power already on your Mac, and all you had to do was turn it on. Yeah, that'd be cool. Anyway, here's something completely different (just kidding). Actually, you can unlock this automation by just doing a little digging. Start by opening your Applications folder, and then look inside your AppleScript folder (don't worry, you're not going to be doing any scripting—they're already written for you). Now double-click on the AppleScript Utility icon, and in the resulting dialog, turn on the Show Script Menu in Menu Bar checkbox. Close the Utility dialog, and then go to the menu bar and click on the Script icon—a list of all sorts of cool automatic functions are now just a click away.
