Did 10.4.3 Mess Up Front Row?

Yesterday, Apple upgraded Mac OS X to version 10.4.3. The update broke the script that opened Front Row and clicked the Escape button for you automatically. Whether or not this was done on purpose by Apple, I don’t know, but it doesn’t matter because I have found a solution.

This is the solution:

  1. Go into /Applications/AppleScript/ and open up Script Editor.
  2. In Script Editor, copy and paste this code:

    tell application “System Events”
    tell application “Front Row” to activate
    key code 53 using {command down}
    delay 0.0
    key code 53
    end tell

  3. Press File, Save As, and name it to Launch Front Row, in your Applications folder overwriting the previous script, and change the file format to Application. Press save.
  4. If you followed my previous instructions then you should be good to go.
