  1. Introduction Have you ever needed that specific app icon to use in your review? Get App Icon workflow comes to help! Open up Alfred, type 'icon' and app's name. If it one installed in your macOS, you should find it in the list. Press Enter and the icon will await on your Desktop. What if that's the app for iPhone or iPad (or just app from Mac App Store)? Just use the 'online' option to search and download. Download from Packal → link direct download → link Screenshots http://i.imgur.com/QLa4WD5m.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/8MUWUrkm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/JhJJfhJm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/Muq658Jm.pnghttp://i.imgur.com/Xbowu4gm.png How it works? To invoke Get App Icon workflow: use the icon keyword which will list all available in /Application folder apps; at top of results there is option to switch to online (App Store / Mac App Store) search that will search for typed app name; use File Action Extract app icon on chosen app on your Mac. The workflow behaves as follow: when used with local application it converts app’s icon in .icns format into .png using the biggest icon size (which is usually 1024 × 1024 or 512 × 512 px) and save it into Desktop folder; when used with online application it downloads its icon in .png format (please read Tips also for further information). Requirements installed Python version 3 installed Pillow library for Python 3 Changelist: 2.2: added workflow's description country code and limit are set as Environment Variables, so there is no need to edit files, just change them in Workflow Environment Variables window bug fixes 2.1: bug fixes 2.0: action rewritten to use Python3 1.5: initial public release
  2. My Epson scanner driver appears to be an app (.app), and it appears in the printers folder (installed by the installer) in location: /Users/<ME>/Library/Printers/ and the app is named, "Epson Scanner V500.app" However, the app never appears in any results in Alfred. I type several variations: "Epson", "Espon Scanner" and "Scanner". None returns results. I tried placing an alias of the app in the applications folders. Still no dice. I know I must be missing something about Alfred to allow me to have the scanner drivers launch from Alfred. Any help appreciated.
  3. I like to use Alfred to launch my applications quickly. Using Catalina Beta but same results in Mojave. When I search for an Application Name most of the time it doesn't return the application name so I can launch it. What do I need to do so that the Applications will all be returned in a search and at the top of the list of files found. Thanks. Using Alfred 4 and have Powerpack.
  4. Hi, I am using Alfred 3.2.1 after resinstalling in the hope that a fresh indexing would solve the problem. As you can see from the attached screenshot, /Applications is included in the Search Scope, but Alfred cannot find any applications (e.g. iTunes), only giving internet search options for the search input. Thanks in advance for tips/support. Joe
  5. I am not able to search for and open applications. I am on El Capitan build 15A262e and Alfred 2.7.2. Here are two screenshots of my app folder and the results when searching. http://i.imgur.com/5vcCvt5.png and http://i.imgur.com/CJv4VHy.png Thanks
  6. Hi, I use Homebrew Cask to install and manage a number of applications on my system. However, for each application that I've installed via Cask, I am seeing duplicate results for said application in the Alfred search results (see picture below( My /Applications/ folder only contains aliases for those that applications that I've installed via Cask. I also have my Applications folder and Caskroom folder on my search scope (see second picture below). Is this a bug? Is there anything I can do to fix this? Thanks, Caleb
  7. Hi, I'm trying to make a workflow that allows me to switch between my mostly used applications using hot keys. For example, I want to use Option+Command+M to bring the "Mail" application to the front, and if the app is not running, open it. I've created the corresponding hot keys and setup a NSAppleScript: on alfred_script(q) tell application "Mail" to activate end alfred_script The script works fine if the application is already running, but doesn't open the app in the opposite case. Also, with some apps, such as MacVim, the above script creates a new window instead of focusing on the current opened window. How should the AppleScript be formulated?
  8. If you do any bug reporting, you may know what a pain it is to get version information for the application in question. Usually, it means going to the 'About' menu and copying version information from there. This workflow lets you copy and paste version information with a few keystrokes. The keyword is 'version'. Download • Packal (Beta) Example outputs: Alfred 2 v2.1.1 (227) on Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42) Safari v7.0.1 (9537.73.11) Mac OS X 10.9.1 (13B42) You can get version information for: The current application Any application on your disk Your operating system There are also several choices when retrieving the information: When dealing with application or OS info: Command: Copy and paste immediately When dealing with application info: Option: Copy with OS information Control: Copy with OS information and paste immediately Here's what it looks like: Enjoy
  9. Hi, I've tried looking on the forums for an Application/Open Window Switcher workflow, but I haven't found anything. Has no one made a workflow that does this yet? I know that there's Command+Tab, but sometimes I just don't wanna use that... Yes I'm lazy. Can someone point me to it? Or if not, I'll try to make one in applescript. Thanks!
  10. A simple workflow that makes it easy to quit all background applications on your Mac! Use the keyword 'qall' or a keyboard shortcut of your own choice to quit every application whose not the frontmost one on your Mac. The workflow won't normally quit your menubar applications... Download version 1.0 Download version 1.01 Download version 1.02 - Update the workflow with the Alleyoop update workflow for Alfred - makes it easier to update this and other supported workflows in the future... - hides Finder windows when using the 'qall' command and Finder is not the frontmost application.
  11. Sometimes, it might be helpful to access apps menus via Alfred. For example: Typing the first few letters of System preferences, having System preferences selected, hitting tab, having all the system preferences menus (General, ... , Sharing) displayed, typing the first few letter the menu I want to access, enter.
  12. A lot of workflows are made to work with specific applications. It would be great if you add an option to limit workflows actions to work only with indicated apps or to exclude some apps that we don't want WF to work. This brings two main benefits especially for workflows based on hotkeys: you will not trigger some workflow by incident in other app that is not supposed to work (which could cause some strange behaviours, if for example workflow triggers some others keyboard shortcuts through AppleScript). you will be able to use same shortcuts in many applications that triggers specific workflows for indicated apps.
  13. Hi everyone! I made this extremely simple workflow which just tells the specified application to quit and then start again - effectively relaunching it! (I had recently faced this situation a lot of times with Java and AIR installs and what not! So I decided to keyboard-ify it with Alfred workflows.) You can download it from the following GitHub link: Start download of RelaunchApp-v1.0.alfredworkflow Hope you like it and feedback is always welcome. cheers, Bedartha Screenshot:
