Can I correct the files I made?
When nothing is opened on the finder, I want him(Jim) to behave like his macro.
I would like to open the Finder in two windows, side by side. Has someone created a trigger or script for this?
However, when one window contains two or more tabs, I want to convert one into the window and make dual views.
This is the example I made. But it didn't work.
We need to see the macro file in order to fully discover what you're doing...
I would have this macro in a Finder-specific macro group.
You have it set to NOT work if the Finder is frontmost.
We don't know how you're running the macro...
Using 'Try' is fraught with opportunities for mistakes.
always test with a hotkey trigger until I get the macro working properly.
When posting macros to the Keyboard Maestro forum please use these guidelines:
Always Post a Macro File.
Post the simplest possible macro that illustrates the problem you're having.
Macros often contain tricky little bits that are likely to be missed in a written explanation.
Providing a real and testable example is a courtesy, and if people don't have to reinvent the wheel to test your macro it
significantly improves the odds that someone will help you.
Always Post a Macro Image.
Folks generally won't download something they haven't eyeballed first, so an image of the macro is crucial.
If you haven't seen these they're worth a moment of your time:

Thank you for your kind reply. And apologised for rude behavior. I caused you trouble with my lack of study pricey. Now I will update the macros.
This will be the actual macro file.

I want to combine these two macros using "if".
Dual Finder_part1.kmmacros (5.4 KB)
Dual Finder_part2.kmmacros (5.0 KB)
I included a small comment on how I wanted to move it in the macro.
It's important to know that you're trying to organize this into a Stream Deck macro group.
I don't have one, so I'm not familiar with the pitfalls – but there are several SD-users on the forum.
I don't like using a single IF action for this, so I've broken things up into 3 IF actions.

It was the perfect thing I wanted. After I make it myself, it will be really a study if you can fix it. Thank you for giving me a really wonderful opportunity! You are really wonderful teacher!

Thank you for worrying about me. I try to do it as much as possible.

If you have time, can I ask you additional question?
I try to making new version macro. I added another dual finder option.
If Finder is running in window, I added another Finder window for the right.
But it doesn't work. Can you tell me what's the cause?

Take a look at your switch. See anything wrong with it?

It was the most fun macro I made! Thank you very much. I really like your way of teaching. Please let me know if we have another chance👍
