I have had help previously to select the BlueTooth menu which works successfully but I cannot get it to to work for opening the Time Machine window and select 'Open Time Machine Settings'. Here is what I am using for BlueTooth to connect my mouse :-
tell application "System Events"
tell process "ControlCenter"
set theMenu to item 1 of (get every menu bar item of menu bar 1 whose description is "Bluetooth")
click checkbox 2 of scroll area 1 of group 1 of window "Control Centre"
Thanks for the quick replay and yes that works fine. The only minor problem is if TM is already 'open' but closed in the dock, how could I bring it to the front? I have tried adding 'Bring Application Windows to Front' and 'Show System Settings' but neither work.
While Neil’s suggestion is a good one, there’s a native way of doing this opening the preferences panes. This should open and bring to front TimeMachine preferences pane even if it’s already open, hidden, minimized etc.
I would swap the order of the two actions so it doesn’t fail if there aren’t any windows open already. (Or just disable the notification and failure aborts options, but I don’t like failure messages in my log at all haha)
It's the friendliest race in the world where everyone's a winner because even if they don't cross the finish line, they still qualify for next time, with everyone else cheering them on. I love this forum.
I had a major crash on my MBP which took local Apple store some while to find (corrupt system and recovery software) and fixed by doing complete rebuild but unfortunately using Sonoma (I was running Ventura and those are my 3 TM Back Ups). Still trying to enable all the various permissions which I am still struggling with.
The point of this reply is the macro you uploaded no longer works as the open Time Machine preferences opens the 'General' panel of preferences. Any more thoughts to cure this?
I’m still on Ventura (and from what I hear about Sonoma won’t be upgrading to it anytime soon, if at all), so I’m not sure what the issue might be. But there are a fair number of other members here that are on Sonoma and might pitch in soon.
