Google your parameters

  • You can google your parameters with a batch file like this:


    You need a double % because a batch file would interpret %20 as your second parameter plus 0. The double % tells it you want %20 which is the URL code for a space.

  • is this the same on Mac

  • @jmcgoverndesign, no that's a batch file which only works on a PC.

    Macs use bash scripts instead.

    This script should open Google in Safari:

    open -a Safari

    This script takes parameters, and should work similarly to the Windows batch file that googles your parameters:

    open -a Safari$1%20$2%20$3%20$4

    I tested it that and it worked for me.
