Automator Mac

Automator is a Mac OS utility that can be misused by malware to perform suspicious activities. Automator is a legitimate application for Mac OS allowing users to perform particular tasks on the system automatically. It has an inbuilt list of AppleScripts allowing to create workflows – the sequence of actions that have to be performed to. Format your USB drive as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with GUID Partition Scheme using Disk Utility. Open the downloaded Disk Image and open; Follow instructions in the application on how to create a bootable Big Sur USB for your unsupported Mac. When the process completes, press the Restart button to restart your Mac. Let your Mac do repetitive tasks for you. If you need to make the same changes to multiple files—such as changing filenames or resizing images—or archive or back up important files, you can create a custom workflow and have your Mac do the work for you. The Automator framework supports the development of actions for the Automator app, as well as the ability to run a workflow in developer apps. An action is a bundle that, when loaded and run, performs a specific task, such as copying a file or cropping an image. Using Automator, users can construct and execute workflows consisting of a sequence.

Automator was a huge differentiator between the Mac and Windows. I know a lot of people never used it, but it was sort of like what FileMaker Pro did for databases in terms of how it made.
