MacOS Finder – Create Services or Quick Actions in Blank Finder Window


I have an Automator script that appears in my Finder>Services menu (it creates a new file). It works fine with the allocated keyboard shortcut.

When I right-click in an empty space inside a folder there’s the Finder’s "New Folder" item (of course) but OS X doesn't seem to offer a Services or Quick Actions contextual menu that has the "current folder" context unless you actually select a folder.

I’d like my script to appear in a contextual menu when right-clicking an empty space in an open folder—is this possible?

No - you’ll need to launch the script from key shortcuts or siri

I’d start with fast scripts or revisit the end goal and see if something like an Elgato stream deck or X-keys programmable keyboard to launch your automations.
