Feature request: Add "File Search" as a fallback search


Recommended Posts

I may be the only one around here that forgets to type a space or the ' when searching for a file...usually there are no results for what I searched, so I get the options to search on Wikipedia, Amazon or Google. I would love to have another option here: file search. This would just perform the search again with a ' or " " added in front. 


I saw fallback searches functionality changed a little bit, and that when adding one there's a menu that for the time being only shows "web search"...so hopefully this is something Andrew and Vero have thought about before.

You can't do that right out of the box, but hopefully Alfred is powerful enough to allow you that. I made this little workflow that does what you want. It could be better but it's work well.


Download it here: http://cl.ly/NdGL and add a new Fallback Search in the "Default Results" section selecting this workflow.
