strange, both point to my desktop folder. I had folder instead of file also.
If I use the below, this directs me to my documents folder, you can change it to library folder etc etc and the result will direct you to your chosen location.
set documents_path to path to documents folder
If I use this, it directs me to my desktop folder.
set desktop_path to path to desktop folder
see the result of the alias path returned in Script Editor, both for me are:
alias "Macintosh HD:Users:Budgie:Desktop:"
alias "Macintosh HD:Users:Budgie:Documents:"
Yes it is strange. All the other path short forms like Users, Documents etc all seem to work fine - but for some reason it refuses to point itself at the Desktop folder.
Even if I grap the alias for the Desktop - and plug that in long-hand - it still refuses to go to the desktop, yet the alias it produces for the Desktop is correct.
