  1. This workflow allows you to invoke AirDrop in Alfred by typing airdrop. Compared to hackish solutions that require AppleScript such as this and this, this simply executes airdrop.app directly, giving you the same experience as what you'd get when you type airdrop in Spotlight, e.g. it won't create duplicates if you already have one or more AirDrop windows or tabs opened, and lauching AirDrop won't bring all Finder windows to the front. I'm actually a bit curious about why Alfred couldn't find airdrop.app after I added /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Appl
  2. Hi all, When I save something from a browser or other application, I use Alfred to identify the target folder (or a file to replace), and then I drag and drop it from Alfred into the "Save as" window, so that it goes quickly to the target folder. Has anybody made a workflow to avoid the drag-and-drop part? In other words something that, if there is a "save as" window open, upon selection of a target folder in Alfred, will go to that folder in the 'save as' window. Thanks! giovanni

  4. I would love to start using Alfred’s file buffer more often, especially with some of the nice additions made in Alfred 4. However, Alfred is in dire need of better Finder-Buffer integration. Either of the following would solve this: a File Action that adds files to the Buffer, or a Hotkey that can be used to add files directly from Finder to the Buffer (i.e., in Preferences → Features → File Search → Buffer). Under the current setup, the ability to use a hotkey to file action files from Finder is great (Preferences → Features → Actions → Selection Hotkey), bu
  5. I dislike have to manually resize and position Finder windows, so after a little research I came up with this solution This workflow produces two Finder windows side by side, any size any position. Modify the script to suit your needs. Hope someone finds it as useful as I do. http://www.manorts.com/alfred/Dualpane.alfredworkflow
  6. This Workflow allows you to easily create a new file in the Mac OS Finder by typing new into Alfred. You can also setup pre-populated templates for filetypes (instructions on my blog). I have also added a hotkey option. You can specify the hotkey from your Alfred Workflow window (I find CTRL + ALT + N works quite nicely). This is a re-write of the Alfred 1.x extension I released last year. Once again I'd like to thank Chris Kalafarski (farski) for improving the first ever version of my script. Download Workflow here (8kb). I hope you find this as useful as I do. To those who may no
  7. I have a File Action based workflow that runs a bash script on the files that are selected in the Finder when I hit Cmd + Opt + \. It works fine. but I'd like to have a variant of this workflow that can be given some text input which will then be used in the bash script later in the workflow. The problem is I can't see anyway to make this happen with Alfred. Ideally I'd like to be able to have a text entry field shown where I can type or paste text and then workflow would then use that. Since I couldn't see a way to do that I figured I might be able to put the text on the clipboard
  8. Overview List hidden files in Alfred from Finder current window or from a select folder in Alfred File Browser (File Action). The workflow does not change Finder files visibility. It will only list those hidden files in Alfred itself. If there isn't any Finder window then the workflow will list hidden files from the user home folder. Usage Keyword Open a Finder window and go to the folder you want Show Alfred and type the keyword hidden or use the hotkey You can filter by typing part of the filename Press Return key to open the file in the default text Editor or, if it is a folder, to

  11. Hi supporters, I’d like to share a workflow which lets you open a new AirDrop window in Finder by typing "airdrop". Get the workflow here: download Please also find the source code on Github. Cheers, Paul Credits: based on an Alfred 1.x extension by @Johnathan1707.
  12. Hello! I previously used some apps that helped hide the visibility of the macOS desktop but wanted to take on creating an Alfred workflow that would do the work for me. All of the existing workflows I found relied on typing out commands to explicitly state if you wanted to show or hide the desktop icons. I think that's silly. Instead, this workflow first looks up whether the desktop is currently hidden, and then uses that data to do the opposite. No typing out explicit commands, just use the same keyboard shortcut to toggle the desktop on and off. Easy peasy. The recomm
  13. Here is a really shoddy work-around that allows a hotkey to add the current OS X selection (like a file in Finder) to Alfred's buffer. Hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing could make something better. http://www.packal.org/workflow/buffer-finder This is in response to requests from this forum:
  14. Hey there! I'd love to see Alfred show Finder's colorlabels! This would be convenient if you use them for tagging. Either one of the possibilities shown in the (poorly made) images below would be fine!

  16. Hi everyone, Based on my day to day workflow, I'll need to open multiples files from different location like Dropbox, Google drive, local folder, links at the same time. Been doing this repeatedly and I thought workflow might be able to fasten the process. I manage to open all the files that I need (which is great✨) but now what's missing is that I can't seem to merge them directly from workflow, I have to go window > merge all window. (which I have created a shortcut for it) Anyone knows how to do it?

  18. Hello, I rely on Alfred exclusively for traversing my file system - opening files and folders with Finder, that is. The problem is that every new folder that I open - unless it already is - is opened in a new tab. Since I jump to and from my Mac's directories like a wild ferret, a simple browsing session results in dozens of Finder tabs. Is there ANY way to make folders open in a current/most recent Finder tab? This would be a real lifesaver. Path Finder behaves likes this out of the box and it's really nice, but the rest of that software is so buggy I couldn't use i
  19. Hi all, I'm looking for a Wordflow which would act as a shortcut to merge all finder windows. Currently, I've gotta go to the Finder bar, tab Window, and then Merge All Windows. I know this isn't a big deal, but if I could create a command or something, that'd be sweet. Does anyone know how I might accomplish this? Thanks in advance.
  20. So I've been trying to make this workflow for a while but I can't find any answers online and I'm not nearly skilled enough to do it myself. I currently use a few alfred workflows to open certain folders that I use for my work. A lot of the time I need to open more than one of these folders and I usually put them on right side of my screen, one above the other. I've already set up a new workflow to open two finder windows but it just opens two windows on top of each other. This is fine really, but I'd like to make a workflow that would arrange the windows without me doi
  21. Hi this is very minor. Within /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app there are a set of "shortcut" apps that open the respective Finder features/locations: It seems this would be a useful addition to the default search locations for Alfred, as it would add iCloud Drive, Recents and other "links" to the standard search results. /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Applications/
  22. When searching in Alfred, I would love to be able to open the location of files/directories in the Finder from the search results I'd also like to be able to right click on them and get a context menu as you would the finder or on the desktop. I did a search on this forum and came across something where users can press the right arrow to get the path, but this would be a bit of a pain to manually open the finder, Go > Go to Folder, paste in the path. I imagine it would not be hard to get a script to make this happen although it'd be a bit hacky. I'd like to see these
  23. I have my clipboard history shortcut set to Cmd+Alt+V - this makes more sense to me than Cmd+Alt+C, because it is another way to paste, not copy (hence option added to Cmd+V paste shortcut). The only downside is that this clashes with Cmd+Alt+V used to move items in Finder. But I never use Clipboard History in Finder, is there a way to selectively disable it? (perhaps this is a feature suggestion) Any other workaround?
  24. So here's a workflow to open the current Finder window in Terminal or iTerm, depending on what you like to stick with.

  25. Friends: ((First please excuse me if this question has been asked a million times but I couldn't find the workflow try as I might)) Newbie starting to love Alfred 3. I've searched the forums and tried some workflows with no luck. How do I create a new folder in the current finder window? Most gratefully, Migs PS: New Folder.alfredworkflow doesn't do anything and has no instructions
