[SOLVED] Changing the shortcut name for an app?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to create a shortcut name to launch an app? I've a new mail app and I'd like to launch it instead of my current Apple Mail when I type 'mail'. How might I do this?

@caspian An alternative way to do this is with an extremely simple workflow connecting a Keyword object to an Launch Apps/Files;


You can then set your keyword to the word you want, with "no argument" on the right, and drag the Spark app to the "Launch Apps" object.


Finally, you can hide Mail.app from your results by dragging it to Spotlight's Privacy tab, then typing "reload" into Alfred to refresh the application cache. You'll never accidentally launch Mail again :)
