  1. This is how I've set it up: keyword -> Launch Apps / Files (with my selected files) -> Run Script where the script is Language: /usr/bin/osascript and the script is as follows: tell application "Moom" arrange windows according to snapshot named "MyLayout" end tell This assumes you've set up a Window Layout Snapshot in Moom called "MyLayout" & which is appropriate for the selected files. I've set up custom snapshots on all three of my machines for the optimal workspace layout based on screen size. Since Moom prefs. are local to each machine (and hence customized based on screen size) but Alfred prefs. are synced in Dropbox, this works great. I can use the same keyword on each machine, and get appropriate results.
  2. This is my first workflow and my knowledge about coding is very limited so feel free to suggest anything, however small. Basically this workflow allows you to push (send) any text or the current website to your pushbullet account. This is especially useful for: those that own multiple devices and want to push something to all devices at once own an android, windows, or chromebook devices and want to bridge the gap with your MacOS device. You can download the workflow here. Instructions 1. Login to Pushbullet.com. 2. Get your API access token from https://www.pushbullet.com/#settings 3. Paste the token into the script, replacing the <API access token here>. 4. You can type push followed by any text and press return. To send the current tab, type push url. Bonus: if you want to see your android notifications, or push something to your Mac from an android, use Noti.center which also uses pushbullet. You can push something to Mac by pushing it to your android, and it will mirror up to the Mac as well.
  3. This Alfred workflow allows you to control your Moom app within Alfred 3. Moom: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/moom/id419330170?mt=12 Installation: 1) Create your Moom layout shortcuts. You must always have "shift" as your modifier key. 2) Add your Moom commands in the "List Filter" within the Alfred workflow, including just the letter inside the “Arg" section. Use instructions: 1) Open Alfred and type "layouts". You must have the window you wish to move as the active frontmost window. 2) Select one of the options and press Enter. - Your window will move to the selected position or monitor. Key features: - You can use this workflow to activate any keyboard shortcut defined in Moom. - Supports multiple monitors. Notes: - If you wish to change "shift" from being the modifier key you must modify the AppleScript.

  4. Hey everyone. I'm inquiring about Clipboard History functionality when using Windows 7/10 via Parallels Desktop (maybe applies to others, but this is my specific use case). The feature works perfect on the Mac side (High Sierra 10.13), but when I try to use it in Windows, it pastes the letter "v". I then have to delete the "v" and then manually paste to get the correct value. In order to get rid of the "v" issue, I have to deselect "Auto paste on return" in Advanced settings. I would prefer to have this option on/selected. In Parallels (current and last several versions) I have the keys mapped so that COMMAND+V is equal to CTRL+V, so it *should* work if Alfred is automating the key press, but I'm not sure if that's what is actually happening. Any suggestions or clarifications to help solve my issue?
  5. After a few years away from MacOS, I finally bought myself a Mac once again. And the first application I installed was of course Alfred. Then I found a couple of extensions I made years ago for Alfred 1 and 2. This one is useful enough to share with you in my opinion. The extension let you set up two different keyboard shortcuts - one for closing every background window in the front application, and another one for quiting every application (in the dock) except the front application.

  6. I created a workflow that restarts you into windows without changing your startup disk. that means if you simply restart in windows, it goes back to OS X again. Download I can improve it with your help. right now you have to change your disk (i.e. /dev/disks0p4) by hand. it could get better if we can detect it automatically. thoughts?
  7. Hi, is there any possible combo, how to make shortcut to jump to items in menu of applications? For example: In Windows you press "ALT + F" and focus is on "File" in menu. Then you hit "E" and you are in export. Yes, in MAC OS you can bind F1 for focusing to menu bar. Hit F1 (or Fn + F1) and your focus is on menu bar. Then write "Fi" and focus is on "File". Then you hit "Enter". Then write "Ex". More steps and not reliable. Another thing is, it sometimes doesn't work. You have to wait for split of a second or something. But I believe, there is something. There has to be something to just press "Alt" and wait for letter. And you hit "Alt + F" and you are focused on "File". Something, that works seamlessly in good ol' Windows. Thanks for Alfred. Having my first mac for couple of weeks and Alfred is really helpful thingie pepę
  8. Closes every visible background window (from all the apps running), and leaves only the front window open. Activate the workflow with a keyboard shortcut. I'm using the following shortcut to close all my background windows: Command+Alt+Control+Delete. Download CloseAllWindows 1.1 Download CloseAllWindows 1.3 Download CloseAllWindows 1.3.1 What's new 1.3.1: - Two shorcuts - one for closing background windows without saving, and another one for closing the windows with saving, if needed. - Bug fix: a lot of windows did not close when supposed to - just a dumbass bug from a newbie What's new 1.3: Added support for the following applications (windows wouldn't close for these apps): Preview, Alfred Preferences and Tweetbot. Please, don't hesitate to update me on other applications this workflow won't close the windows in.
  9. This workflow is for running scripts using Mjolnir to control your windows. This is just a sample of the things that can be done. Follow this layout and you can do many neat things with Mjolnir. First off, download Mjolnir from https://github.com/mjolnir-io/mjolnir.git. That site also tells how to get started. To install the needed modules and configuration file, you will need to run the "mj:install" command. This will also install the cli program called "mjolnir". Once mjolnir and it's cli program is installed, use the "mj:find mjolnir" command to set the path to the executable. After this step is done, all the following commands are available to use. mj:install This will install some modules that is used in the configuration file for this workflow. It will also install a default configuration file for mjolnir. If you already have one, move it to a temporary location, run this command, and then copy your function to the configuration file. This should be the second command you run to get this workflow running. mj:updateinit This command just updates the init.lua file to the new one for the workflow. It does not try to update the modules. mj:reload This tells mjolnir to reload the configuration file. mj:open This will open the Mjolnir console to the front. mj:nup This nudges the current window up. mj:ndown This nudges the current window down. mj:nleft This nudges the current window to the left. mj:nright This nudges the current window to the right. mj:tcaff This toggles system caffenate. mj:leftthirds This moves the current window to the left 1/3 of the screen. mj:rightthirds This moves the current window to the right 2/3 of the screen. mj:lefthalf This moves the current window to the left half of the screen. mj:righthalf This moves the current window to the right half of the screen. mj:tophalf This moves the current window to the top half of the screen. mj:bottomhalf This moves the current window to the bottom half of the screen. mj:fullScreen This moves the window to the maximum size on the screen. mj:minimize This minimizes the current window. mj:tzoom This toggles the system fullscreen on and off for the current window. This moves the window to it's own space taking up the entire screen. mj:running This will list all the running apps. You can then just select one to bring it to the front, select with alt key to hide it, select with ctrl key to unhide it, and select with the fn key to close the application. mj:snap This snaps the current window to the closes grid box area. mj:setgrid This requires you to put the x, y for a starting position in a 3x3 matrix for the current window. Then you give the width and height. Therefore, to move the current window to the upper left most block in a 3x3 matric, you would do "mj:setgrid 0, 0, 1, 1". There is also a hotkey set to this value as an example. mj:command Type in a command string and it will be sent to Mjolnir directly! mj:ftmove This puts every window for FoldingText to the left half of the screen. mj:fttoday This focuses the window with the title "today.txt". That is my todo list for the day. mj:expose This will list all applications. When an application is selected, it will show all of it's windows in a matrix on the screen and ask the user for the coordinates of the one to show. It will then put all the windows back to their original position and bring the one selected to the foreground. If the application has only one window, it will simply bring it to the front. I also created a hotkey for doing Expose on FoldingText. The user can create more in the same manner. Just be careful to get the name of the application correct! mj:last This will move the last window moved around to it's position and size before the movement. This is a single level return. This workflow is also set up with a Remote page as well. Have fun controlling your windows from your iPad or iPhone. Please let me know if you have any issues with this workflow.

  10. Hello. Is there a workflow to "Show" all open/minimized windows for all your running apps? I find it very frustrating on my MacBook Pro that sometimes if I minimize the main window of an app, that no matter how many times I click the icon on the Dock, or click "Show Windows", nothing comes up, I have to quit the app, restart it and then just have to remember to not close it again lol.. A lot of the time, I will be running Logic X on one screen and Chrome and iMessage on the other, so it would be helpful to have something that can "Maximize/Show" all open/running windows.. Anything out there?
  11. Hello, community! I've created a new workflow to help me share smb links. - convert link like \\server\path to smb://server/path and other unix style, - convert unix paths to windows style, - automatically copied all links into clipboard. DOWNLOAD HERE For example: Windows user sent me the shared path like: \\server\shared\path\ On my Mac with Alfred, I've convert it in a seconds to unix-style, like: //server/shared/path/ afp://server/shared/path/ smb://server/shared/path/ cifs://server/shared/path/ \\server\shared\path\
  12. I work on a Mac in a Windows dominated work place and often have to send links to files and folders on network drives to other users using Windows PC. Is there any way to create a workflow that copies the path to the folder and magically transforms it into a link that a Windows based user can click on?

  15. I use the Microsoft Natural series of keyboards on all my computers, and frequently switch between Windows and OS X. I have it mapped so the keys are in the same places as the Mac keyboard (meaning Ctrl == control, Win == option, Alt == command) since that's the OS I use most often.[/size] This workflow lets me use the Win+key combo to perform the most common system functions I use regularly: Win + L: Lock screen Win + U: Shut Down Win + R: Restart Shift + Alt + F4: Quit all Ctrl + Shift + Esc: Application Monitor The same keys work on the Mac keyboard, just with different names on the keys: ⌥ + L: Lock screen ⌥ + U: Shut Down ⌥ + R: Restart ⇧ + ⌘ + F4: Quit all ˄ + ⇧ + ⎋ (␛): Application Monitor You can download it at https://github.com/morganestes/alfred-windows-hotkey.
  16. Hi, I'm a new Alfred user and am really loving the program. I'm on v. 2.1.1 and am having an issue with Alfred not finding files at two locations of my Parallels installation (the same files are turning up in Spotlight searches). I've added the two folders to the Search Scope list under Default Results, but to no avail. I've also rebuilt my OS X metadata, but this hasn't helped either. My OS is Mavericks (v. 10.9.1). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  17. Hey guys, workflow newbie here! I'd like to see if it's possible to open a file or folder using Alfred, passed through to the windows/parallels side with a key in. For example, I'd like to type "CPP" in Alfred and open a folder in windows explorer called "Central Polk Parkway" or type "PPM" and open a pdf called "Plans Prep Manual", again on the windows/parallels side. I can easily do this with a simple workflow on the mac side with finder but can I pass it thru parallels? I've searched the forums for my answer with no luck. Thanks for any help.
  18. hi, i've 1Pwd for Mac installed on my Mac and 1Pwd for Windows installed on my Windows XP virtual machine (Parallels v.7). problem: Alfred is now offering me to log me in ONLY with 1Pwd for Windows while I haven't opened my Windows VM for a week! i can't log me in any more on websites on Mac OS X 10.8.4 tried to uncheck this option in Alfred, restarted Alfred and so forth but no way: Windows XP or nothing. please help thanks
  19. This workflow is useable but also a skeleton I made to answer a question @rosenkrieger asked on app.net (https://alpha.app.net/rosenkrieger/post/4397777). In the form I present it, it has hotkeys and (non searchable) the ".arrange" keyword which lists some arrangement setups (frontmost window left, right, top left quarter) and an example on starting an application (safari) and moving its window into place. Keep in mind this was more a proof of concept for testing if it is possible to start apps and arrange windows with alfred in an easy way. It can be used to resize the frontmost window by keeping the application name in setWin() empty (see the first 3 of my sample setups) It also can be used as base to create your own customized workflow which starts applications and puts it's window into the place you want (see the 4th setup) After installing the workflow set the Hotkeys to "Shift + ALT + CMD + A", "Shift + ALT + CMD + B", "Shift + ALT + CMD + C", "Shift + ALT + CMD + D" When you then press the hotkeys it does the frontmost window resize magic. You can also pop up Alfred and type ".arrange " to get the list of available arrangement setups and chose one of them. Feel free to modify the script (pretty straight forward I think) to do what you want! Download: https://github.com/oderwat/alfredworkflows/blob/master/Window%20Arrangements.alfredworkflow
  20. Hey guys! I recently did some digging and found an awesome applescript, that allows you to reboot your computer to your boot camp volume for the next boot only. So I decided to make a workflow out of it to streamline the process. Here is the workflow: http://d.pr/f/F0CD ****Instructions**** 1) Edit the applescript, see where is says "PUT NAME OF BOOTCAMP VOLUME HERE", do as it says, and put the volume name there. Make sure to have the exact name of the volume, spaces or no spaces, must be exact name! If you don't know the name of your bootcamp volume you can find it here: Open finder > hit Shift+Cmd+G > in the text field copy and paste this: /Volumes Once in the folder it should be the drive that isn't named "Macintosh HD"2) I have my keyword to "windows" but you can set it to whatever works best for you. ********Note********* When you run the workflow, your computer will restart, before it does restart it will ask you for your admin password. Make sure you have all documents saved!

    This workflow restart the Mac and boot the selected Windows Bootcamp Partition. The keyword "bc" lists all partitions on Windows. You have to enter your password in the AppleScript, otherwise you'll always asked for it.
