Applescript - Get User's Active Desktop

How would I do this? I’m making an Automator action that involves an Applescript to retrieve the user’s active desktop and the user’s host computer type. A fast reply would be very much appreciated as it’s 3:14AM here soooo… :cool:


The difficulty with an answer is that I don’t know what you mean by the user’s active desktop - do you mean desktop image? desktop contents? desktop dimensions?

Computer type as in Power PC G5?

I no longer need computer type. By active desktop, I mean the image currently selected in SysPrefs as the wallpaper/desktop image. Thanks :slight_smile:

tell application "Finder"
	get desktop picture
end tell

:stuck_out_tongue: It’s that simple? Well thanks so much for the reply. :cool:
