I like how CentOS and pretty much any Linux distro I can right-click anywhere on the desktop, and have the option to open a terminal. Is there a way to add this option to the Mac OS right click menu option repertoire? I know this may not be in the right place, but this seems to be the Linux expert forum for Mac.

Thanks,

Hey jwillis0720,

You can use Automator to do this. Open Automator, then select New Service. Add to the workflow the item "Run Applescript." In the box, type the following code:

____
tell Application "Terminal"
make new document
end tell
____


Then save this service as "Open new Terminal Window".

Now when you right click, voilą!
