Hi @Mikael Grevsten Alfred relies on the macOS metadata index provided by your Mac. If this is corrupted, then the information necessary for Alfred to return apps in your results isn't there.


Alfred 3 would've had a cache of applications, which would've masked any underlying metadata issues. Alfred 4 needs to create a new cache, but it appears your metadata may be corrupted.


You can rebuild your macOS metadata index by going to Alfred's Advanced prefs and clicking the Rebuild macOS Metadata button.
