How can I change the Application that shows first when I start typing

Recommended Posts

Until recently when I typed "1" the first App. in the list was 1Password.


Since some time - and I don't know why - iTunes is first in the list when I type "1".


As I often type and hit return without looking iTunes is now somehow glued to the "1".


Is there a preference-file where I can change that? Or: How do I train Alfred to put 1P back on No. 1 in the list?

Hi @Thomas_U, if you select 1Password a couple of times after typing "1", Alfred will learn this is the app you want to prioritise :) 


Apple are quite cheeky in the keywords they include in the metadata for iTunes. Here's what's in the metadata:

"Music, Radio, Apple Music, Apple Radio, iTunes Radio, Beats 1, Beats One, B1, iCloud Music Library, Apple Music Connect, My Music"


Alfred will always learn from your usage, so as long as you pick the 1Password app a few times for that specific keyword, it'll come up first.

@Thomas_U Make sure keyword latching is turned on in Alfred's Advanced preferences > Learning > "Top Result Keyword Latching"


You should then only need to select it a couple of time to tell Alfred you want "1" to be associated to 1Password :)
