    I want to write a script for OSX that changes the homepage of safari and copies files from a windows server to the desktop of the current user. The windows server share in question allows guest access so no credentials are needed.

    I have found the code to change the safari home page which is as follows:
    do shell script "defaults write HomePage '

    I need to use a variable for the desktop path because I need to use the script for different users.

    once I get the script working I hope to use automator to create a basic gui to have a one click button for each task.

    I have a batch file doing the tasks above for a windows machine changing the internet explorer homepage and copying files to the current users desktop But I have not yet created any scripts for OSX.

    thanks in advance
