# Macos – Easiest way to create a new text file in a Finder window on OSX

OK, so if I'm browsing directories in OS X Finder, what's the easiest way to create a new text file?

Right now I have to either open TextEdit, click around until I get to the same directory I'm in, or I have to open a terminal window, cd to the directory, and touch blahblah.txt. I'm spoiled by the right-click menu in Windows.

tell application "Finder" to make new file at (the target of the front window) as alias
