Stuck in iTunes mini player


Recommended Posts

I just launched the iTunes mini player in Alfred when iTunes was not open on my Mac.  It launched iTunes, but then there was no way for me to get OUT of the mini player except to quit Alfred.  Running Mojave 10.14.4.

This will almost certainly be down to macOS requesting permission for Alfred to control iTunes. This should appear in front of Alfred, but sometimes, macOS will put the request dialog behind Alfred. You can try dragging the Alfred window out the way to reveal the dialog and confirm access (which you should only need to do once).


Another cause of this could be iTunes modally blocking AppleScript, waiting for input. Again, unusual, but if you launch iTunes and make sure it's not asking any questions before using Alfred's mini player.


There are a few things I've done for the future which should mitigate these issues.
