All 25 of the Mac-Only Actions Coming to Shortcuts for Mac ๐Ÿ”

In macOS Monterey, Apple has added 5 sets of actions to the Shortcuts app that are Mac-only โ€“ these arenโ€™t available for iPad or iPhone users as they require specific features/apps.

Mac users can now easily automate their window management, interact with Finder, make disk images, perform actions taken from Automator, and take advantage of deeper Mac automation โ€“ plus thereโ€™s two actions not yet found in the betas.

In this 4,800-word piece (about 20 minutes average reading time), Iโ€™ll explain each of them in detail, plus give you my initial thoughts on what bringing this functionality to macOS means for the transition to Shortcuts as Appleโ€™s main automation platform.
