Jack

can't get this to work, anyone able to help?

What problem did you have? I'd need more info so that I could help you.

only got one window to open on my mBP 13'

any help to expect here or thats it?

tosbsas,

I'm afraid that I'd need more info to help you:

Have you import the preset in Betterltouchtool?
Can you try to run the script here and see if it works? (this script will make two finder windows side by side) https://github.com/sjackwu/DualFinder/blob/master/AppleScript/Hyper-F--DualFinder.scpt


tosbsas,

This is what I see when I run the script. Please let me know if there is any difference when you run the script.

I have the preset installed. And I get only one window jumping from left to right.

tosbsas,

There is one condition that might cause the scenario you saw:
Do you have a virtual desktop and you have a second Finder window opened in that virtual desktop? To find out, in Finder, click the Window command and see if there is more than one Finder window opened (please see screenshot). If that's the case, close the other Finder windows and try again.

it actually opens two windows - see screenshots, but I only can see one, its not side by side

tosbsas,

You might want to try the original script that inspired me. https://copiancestral.wordpress.com/2012/03/24/two-finders-side-by-side/

same problem

Found the error :-)) had set finder to open folders in tab and not in windows

Now, maybe you can help me to edit the preset that way that the windows open in downloads
