Saving and Recalling Window Positions With Automator

You can use JavaScript in Automator to save the positions of each window in each app to a file. Then you can recall those positions later if you want to resume working with the same window locations. This script will save as many position settings as you like and then allow you to recall them easily. You can even set it up as a keyboard shortcut.

    Gary, Great stuff. I have AppleScripts for this but look forward to trying it with JavaScript. Thanks for posting the video.

    When we are doing scripts like this where do we save them so they run? I am new to this kind of thing.

    Michael: Depends. For this, you can save them where you like. Create a “Scripts” folder or something in your Document folder. For Quick Actions (AKA Services), they automatically go in a special folder.
