  1. Keep all the miscellaneous crap off your Desktop by sweeping everything into a "DeskDrawer" folder, which is easily accessible from our good friend Alfred. Download DeskDrawer v1.5 [updated 25 March 2014] Okay, the idea is not completely original — I've used apps like DesktopTidy and Unclutter to achieve this, but it's amazing how simple it is to replicate the basic concept with an Alfred workflow. This is your "DeskDrawer" in Alfred (keyword "drawer", default hotkey Shift-Cmd-D). From there you can: search the list (just start typing) open an item (select it) move it back to your Desktop (option-select) reveal it in DeskDrawer/Finder (cmd-select) browse/open it in Alfred (ctrl-select) for further action. Move item to the Trash (fn-select) [NEW in 1.3] There is a file action, "Move to DeskDrawer" (as well as the keyword "move") for quickly flicking items into the Drawer. There is also the keyword "sweep" to scoop all your Desktop items into DeskDrawer in one hit. And finally, "deskrestore" will dump the contents of your DeskDrawer back on the Desktop in all its messy glory. You can also undo your last file/folder movement with the "unmove" keyword. [New in v1.5] And now you can protect certain items on your Desktop from being moved during a sweep, with either the File Action "Protect from DeskDrawer Sweep" or the keyword "protect". (Reverse this with the File Action "UnProtect from DeskDrawer Sweep" or keyword "unprotect".) [New in v1.5] And finally, for full documentation, use the keyword "deskdrawer help". [New in v1.5] I don't about the rest of you, but I like to keep my Desktop as clutter-free as possible (unlike my IRL desktop! ), so having this capability in Alfred is great. Let me know what you think, or any bugs you find. Features I'd still like to add: The ability to "protect" certain files from the "sweep" and "deskrestore" actions. [DONE in v1.5] Be able to specify the location of your DeskDrawer folder. [DONE in v1.2] Any requests? UPDATE: 1 April 2013 - v1.3 New action: "fn-select" item to Trash it. Consolidated and tidied up workflow setup panel. Support for Alleyoop auto-updater Minor cosmetic tweaks. UPDATE: 2 April 2013 - v1.4 New keyword: "move" — moves selected items to Drawer (same as the file action, but you just enter it in Alfred's main window — some people seem to prefer this approach.)UPDATE: 25 March 2014 - v1.5 New icon for DeskDrawer folder (to fit in with OS X custom folder look). DeskDrawer is now allowed on the Desktop itself. “Undo” function to reverse the last “Move” to DeskDrawer or Sweep. “Protect” specified Desktop items from being moved to the DeskDrawer during Sweeps. Fix for XML-illegal characters in filenames. More icons. Removed AlleyOop updater support. Default DeskDrawer location is now Home folder. Local documentation (keyword: deskdrawer help) Miscellaneous minor tweaks and fixes.

  3. Hi, I've read several thread regarding this but I think I am still clueless as to how it works. What I am looking for: a workflow which will append any Clipboard inputs to my clipboard.txt document. What is the best way to do it? Any help would be appreciated.
  4. Show Mac Desktop

    Show Mac Desktop I'm looking for a Window's Show Desktop alternative on Mac. The Show Desktop option of Mission Control may be a choice, and I also found and tried this workflow as well, but it doesn't work perfectly. So I decide to make a workflow by myself. It's my first time to write AppleScript and please leave any feedback and suggestion. Download Packal Copy Usage Press ⌘+D to Show Desktop - a shortcut to minimize all the on-screen windows. Also you can assign the hotkey you preferred. How it works A hotkey combining two-step action: Activate Finder and hide all other apps by ⌘+⌥+H. Activate Finder and minimize the front app by ⌘+⌥+M. Similar workflows Show Desktop Minimize all windows
  5. Hey all, Wrote this tiny Alfred workflow that removes all "Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 9.23.53 AM" files that end up cluttering your desktop after a while. Just have to type "clean" in your Alfred console. The workflow is here: https://github.com/lambtron/alfred-clean Enjoy! Andy
  6. This workflow lets you start sharing your screen via Screenhero: It shows your currently online Screenhero contacts. When you action a result, it will start sharing your screen with that contact. If you have multiple monitors, it will ask you to choose a monitor first. Download the workflow. Requires Screenhero to be installed and running: download Screenhero here. Thanks and let me know what you think!
  7. Move Selected Finder Item

    I love the way Matt Healy's Text Tools workflow looks, and I wanted a workflow to move selected finder items to a specific folder in the same way that you can create a new text file in his workflow. I don't know Applescript or shell script, but I do know how to grab pieces of code from other places and throw them at Applescript editor until something works. After several weeks of googling and throwing rotten apples at the wall, I've finally gotten the workflow to work. All you have to do is select the item you want in the Finder and type "move" and the name of the folder you want in Alfred. Then hit enter and voila! It moved! You can download the workflow here. Questions/comments/concerns/suggestions, please let me know! This is my first workflow and I have very little idea what I'm doing.
  8. Hi everyone, I thought few days ago about a workflow I'd like to use. I tried to develop it, but it is far above my skills, that's why I'm asking you. Simply put, I love Mission Control, but I love Alfred more! The idea (pretty simple): the keyword switch for example would list all running app. On return, Alfred would then list the different desktops (including the identifier of the screen in the subtitle field). After selecting one desktop, Alfred moves the window of the app previously selected to the destination desktop. Additionally, the keyword desktop would directly list the desktops, to switch from one to another. Listing the running apps is something I could do, there are many workflows I can take as example to achieve this, but I can't script the desktop thing. Does someone has an idea how to do this? thank you very much!
  9. Wallpaper Workflows

    Hi, This is my first attempt at making workflows. Posting 2 very simple workflows for changing the desktop wallpapers. 1. Set Desktop Picture A simple file Action which can be seen when browsing images in Alfred. Simply select "Set as Wallpaper" from the actions menu. Pre - Requisite : Change Picture should be Disabled in Desktop & Screen saver, in the preference pane. 2. Skip Wallpaper Simply set a custom hotkey (Default is option + command + w), pressing the same skips to the next wallpaper. Pre - Requisite : Change Picture should be enabled in Desktop & Screen saver, in the preference pane. Links : Set Desktop Picture :::: Skip Wallpaper With inputs from other forum members & Google.
  10. I created a workflow that hides/unhides the icons on your desktop. I use this at work because i don't want others to see what is on my desktop. just type "desktop hide" or "desktop unhide" to hide or unhide the icons. Screenshot: http://cl.ly/image/453u2H050a2w Download: http://cl.ly/1u330t3k1F19 I hope this is helpful for some of you.
  11. I like to hide my Desktop icons, specially when I'm going to present a keynote. This is a very simple workflow that executes a shell command to toggle the Desktop icon. I Hope someone else find it useful. Just use the keyword deskicons. Download Link: http://cl.ly/OEG8 If it's not working properly (no change, or icons reappearing in a few seconds) try executing the following command in the terminal: defaults write com.apple.finder CreateDesktop 1 After that it should work fine.
