hello You all,

i have a applescript script to open 2 finder windows below.
The problem is that i want to open the 1e finder window with the Downloads folder and the 2e finder window with the documents folder.

Can somebody help me, see script below


-- Feel free to copy, modify and redistribute this script any way you like
-- Be careful to run this "AS IS" script on your machine. I've
-- tested it and it works on my iMac but if you don't know what you're doing,
-- you could end up hurting your beloved Mac and the data on it.
-- Cheers, Loek

-- This script opens two finder windows side-by-side
property finderWidth : 900 -- MUST BE SMALLER THEN HALF OF THE ACTUAL SCREEN SIZE!
property finderHeight : 700

tell application "Finder"
set screenBounds to bounds of window of desktop
set screenWidth to item 3 of screenBounds
set screenHeight to item 4 of screenBounds
set centerX to screenWidth / 2
set centerY to screenHeight / 2
activate
set visible of (every process whose visible is true and frontmost is false) to false
set finder1 to make new Finder window
set the bounds of finder1 to {centerX - finderWidth div 1, centerY - (finderHeight / 2) div 1, centerX - 2 div 1, centerY + (finderHeight / 2) div 1}
set the current view of finder1 to column view
set finder2 to make new Finder window
set the bounds of finder2 to {centerX + 2, centerY - (finderHeight / 2) div 1, centerX + finderWidth, centerY + (finderHeight / 2) div 1}
set the current view of finder2 to column view
end tell

Code:
property finderWidth : 900 -- MUST BE SMALLER THEN HALF OF THE ACTUAL SCREEN SIZE!

	set visible of (every process whose visible is true and frontmost is false) to false
	set finder1 to make new Finder window
	-- Downloads folder
	set the target of finder1 to path to downloads folder
	set the bounds of finder1 to {centerX - finderWidth div 1, centerY - (finderHeight / 2) div 1, centerX - 2 div 1, centerY + (finderHeight / 2) div 1}
