Chapter 7. AppleScript > Folder Actions

7.6. Folder Actions

A folder action is a script that the Mac triggers automatically whenever you do something specific to a particular folder: open it, close it, move it, resize it, or change its contents.

7.6.1. Attaching and Removing Folder Actions

If you've never before used folder actions, first run the Enable Folder Actions script from the Script menu, which turns on the feature. (You can also turn on Enable Folder Actions in the new Folder Actions Setup program, which is in your Applications→ AppleScript folder.)
