    Right now the folder is on my desktop. Where should I move it? Once I move it to a folder, what then? Where do I type ./scrutil h?

    First you need to click or double click on the file you downloaded because it is a compressed.  After doing so you should end up with a folder called   "ScreenUtil"  

     

    Then:

     

    1)  Goto Spotlight in upper right, and type the word Terminal

    2)  Spotlight should find it, and now you click it.

     

    Do we have a Terminal WIndow open now?  Yes, then:

     

    Type the following:

     

    cd ~/Desktop/ScreenUtil

    ./scrutil h

     

    Are we there?

    Un - Real !!!

     

    Yep.  Was working just a short while ago,  I'm talking my way through an assist to open terminal at the moment on this issue in another thread. That person has downloaded though.  Perhaps give it a bit.

     

    Wait... that's this thread.  And that's where you came in.

     

    Here , i posted on dropbox:

    Still trying to figure this out...I just downloaded twice and now not working again.

     

    Just a few minutes ago I right clicked on the link and it worked fine that method.  Now it's not.

    For the Love of Pete, I thought I was just SECONDS away from finding out if this would work around 5:30 this mourning,  then "poof" everyone disappeared.

     

    I just tried this and it worked, I have !! NO IDEA !! what is going on.  I'm going to post it below, and test myself after I submit. 

     

    Right click to download:

    I must be typing something in wrong in Terminal. Should it look like this?

     

    cd ~/Desktop/ScreenUtil./scrutil h OR

     

    cd ~/Desktop/ScreenUtil

    ./scrutil h

     

    Which one?

     

    Then what?

    If you placed the file on your desktop and then double clicked on it so it created a folder named "ScreenUtil", then below steps should match very close.

     

    Starting Point is from when Terminal WIndow opens from Spotlight:

    If you get some sort of output that resembles above,  the very next command is:

    I'm not coming up with anything. Let's start over. The next time I get an answer from you, I will stay on here until we get this right. I'll look to hear from you.

    A known starting point is a novel idea.

     

    I guess Step One is determine if you downloaded the correct file.   It is very probably you downloaded the link to the file, and not the file itself.  Mimic my settings shown below for the Desktop "Show View Options" (right click anywhere on the Desktop to bring up the menu), and what size are the file or files you downloaded?

     

    This is what I was hoping you had, and what we are striving for:

     

    (Once we get here, we are all but done....)

    OK, I'm here for the duration, and I'll check out the file I downloaded.....

    I definitely downloaded the ScreenUtil folder with 3 items in it. I've already trashed the zip file.

    Well, that a good thing. Can you open that folder and take a screen capture so I can see its contents?

     

    Press Command-Shift and the 4 key at same time, your cursor will turn into a bullseye and you can select an area on the screen by right clicking and dragging the area with the mouse.  As soon as you let go of the right click, a snap shot will take a picture and place it on your desktop.

    The ScreenUtil folder is 97,036 bytes or 106 KB. It includes a readme first text and a user file plus a file called "scrutil". Scruti is an application downloaded from the internet and asks for permission to open it.
