Alfred window should pop up in the active screen for multi screen environment

Recommended Posts

For multi-screen environment, Alfred window always pop up in the original screen. It sometimes bring inconvenience to turn my head from one screen to another. When starting an application, the application window show up in the active screen, so I think it is implementable to detect which screen is active.

Hopefully this thread isn't so old as to be "Necro-posting", but I thought the context was useful and it isn't like you need yet another identical thread title!


I really want Alfred to open on the active screen, but the setting has never had an effect for me.  If I chose the "mouse screen" it works as expected, but I use keyboard navigation a lot so frequently the mouse is not in the screen I'm actually using. For me this has been persistent since my first use of Alfred more than 1.5 years ago.  So that is through Mojave and now Catalina.  I finally went looking for a solution, and have been surprised at all the people here talking about it working as expected. 


Are there any clues on what I could do in order to get it working as expected?
