Recent used files


Recommended Posts

In Alfred when we navigate and open the action list of an app (e.g. Word), we could browse the "recent used files" list, which is a great function. Well, there's actually something not so convenient about it. At first I was experiencing a problem that I couldn't find a recently opened file in the list; later, I eventually found out that, instead of showing all files opened by an app, the list only shows files that have been opened through Alfred. And this makes everything far more complicated than it's been designed to be.

 

Would you please do a little bit of change to this? Thanks a ton!

When an Alfred feature that interacts with the system looks limited, bet on it working that way due to a limitation that cannot be easily overcome. This case is no exception. From the documentation:

 

Known issue: this feature is not fully compatible with Microsoft Office and some other non-Cocoa (non-native OS X) applications. In these cases, only files opened with Alfred will appear in results due to the limitation of the third party software.
