    Does anyone know of any Automator Actions to modify System Preferences?
    Specifically I have the bottom right screen corner set to do Desktop Exposé when I point the cursor there, and I want to make a workflow to toggle this on and off. I've never used Automator before so I don't know a whole lot about it. Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

    I played around with Automator today trying to do just this.

    A not so computer savy friend of mine is having a hard time connecting their new Mac Mini to the internet on a DSL line. There are a few settings that need to be input via the System Prefs > Network > Ethernet dialogue box and I was hoping I could build an automator action that she could run and it would do it all for her.

    Any suggestions?
