Alfred not using /Applications folder for apps in search

Recommended Posts

After updating to 10.15 (I wish I hadn't), Alfred is looking at the wrong folder when searching for applications.

As you can see from the above screenshot, Alfred is not looking in the usual /Applications folder.

When taking a look at Preferences, nothing looks odd. Standard Spotlight works fine.

I'm using Alfred 4.04. I even uninstalled and downloaded a new copy just to see if that helped.

What do you mean "wrong folder"? Is Alfred not finding applications it should find?

 

Catalina moves the system to a separate, read-only partition, so built-in applications are no longer in /Applications. As I understand it, selecting the "macOS Applications folder" option adds Catalina's new directories to your Search Scope.

Oh I understand. I thought that because SnippetsLab was crashing and the unusual path, it was something wrong with Alfred. Other apps work fine. Must be an issue with SnippetsLab. Thanks.

Workflows aside, pretty much any time you tell Alfred to open/run something, it just tells macOS to open/run the thing. So if X doesn't open, it's most likely a problem with X or with macOS.
