File Search for Short Name

Recommended Posts

I use Alfred's file name search all the time, probably more than any other feature. Sometimes the item I'm looking for doesn't show up among the first 9 items that Alfred finds. This happens particularly if I want to open a folder that contains lots of similarly-named files. So if I want to open a folder called Example that contains file Example 1, Example 2, Example 3 and so forth, Alfred may show me 9 individual files but not the folder. Of course I can open the folder with a bit of conning arrow key use but it would be nice to have some sort of "end" key so I could search for "Example|", say, and not be offered a bunch of Example* files.


Any way to do this?
