Select folder and open in application

Recommended Posts

I am trying create a workflow that will let me select a folder and open it in an application. So far the closest I have gotten is a hotkey to open "Browse in Alfred" and a "File Action" to open the path with the application.  Is there a way to get an output from "Browse in Alfred"?

Welcome to the forums, @Growler,


In your Hotkey, make sure the Action is Pass through to workflow and Argument is Selection in macOS. Connect it to an Open File Action and set the desired application there.


Additional unrelated notes:

  • “[HOW TO]” is for when you’re teaching how to do something, not when asking for help. I’ve edited the title of the post accordingly.
  • When asking for help with a Workflow, please always upload it somewhere. Debugging can already be hard with access to the code, but it’s significantly harder with just a description and screenshots. The Reporting Problems with Workflows topic has a nice overview on how to build an effective report.
