Eject and delete DMGs in one strike
Opening a downloaded
.dmg file goes fairly quick, straight from the browser. Unmounting it, once the .app is copied to the applications folder, also goes pretty quick using
CMD+E. But then, there's still that dmg file in the downloads folder, forcing you to navigate there in Finder and manually deleting it.
Not when you have
CMD+SHIFT+E linked to this AppleScript, set up as an Automator Service for Finder!
1. Create a new Service in Automator
2. Service receives
no input in
3. Drag in a new
Run AppleScript block
4. Paste in the code
