I'm trying to tell the Finder to do the following please read and/or reenact the following with 2 finder windows open.

Switch from window 1 to 2
close window 1.

^ Thats based on there being < 1 windows. Code -


tell application "Finder"
activate
tell application "Finder" to set FinderWindowOpen to ((count each Finder window) > 1)

if (FinderWindowOpen) then
tell application "System Events" to tell process "Finder"
keystroke "`" using {command down}
keystroke "w" using {command down}
end tell



However, if there is MORE than 2 windows open i want finder to close ALL open windows, then open ONE new fresh one.

If the above code looks like its missing stuff, heres the full code.
The problem i am having is the first bit works, but getting Finder to see if theres more than 2 windows open then closing them all does not.

Full code -


tell application "Finder"
activate
tell application "Finder" to set FinderWindowOpen to ((count each Finder window) > 1)
set FinderWindowMore to ((count each Finder window) < 100)

if (FinderWindowOpen) then
tell application "System Events" to tell process "Finder"
keystroke "`" using {command down}
keystroke "w" using {command down}
end tell

else if (FinderWindowMore) then
tell application "Finder"
activate
end tell
tell application "System Events" to tell process "Finder"
keystroke "w" using {command down, option down}
keystroke "n" using {command down}
end tell

end if
end tell

This should work:
tell application "Finder"
activate

set numWindowsOpen to count each window

if (numWindowsOpen is equal to 2) then
close window 1
else if (numWindowsOpen is greater than 2) then
close every window
make new Finder window
end if
end tell
