Searching in files in a specific location

Recommended Posts

Hi @Nat and welcome to the forum :) 


Take a look at the Workflows tab, click the [+] at the bottom > Examples > Dynamic File Filter.


This built-in workflow example uses the keyword "ff", so type "ff" followed by a folder you'd like to search, then press return. You've now specified the search scope within which you want to search, and you can then type the name of the file you're looking for.

You can create your own workflows where, for example, you could dynamically specify the file types you want to search (or just create a few workflows for the most common file types you might search, e.g. images, pdfs).


If you need help creating your own workflows, don't hesitate to ask. We've got a most excellent community here who'll be happy to help you find your way with Alfred :)
