Is it possible to set a modifier key to do something in File browser?


Recommended Posts

When you are in Alfred's native file browser like here :

It would be amazing if I can set control + return to open the selected file/folder in some application (VS Code for me). Right control + return opens it in Finder.

 

So does cmd + return and opt + return. I can't find anywhere in UI where I can specify what these actions do. 

 

I know I can do file action on it and then 'open with...' but I want to skip that step.

I have that action. But to access it, you have to activate file actions, then start searching for 'code' then press return.

 

I just thought that you can customise modifier key actions in the file viewer itself.

What is if you set the default application to VS Code and just open via "Enter". If you want to open it in finder then press "cmd+Enter" etc.
