How Long to Wait for App Refresh?


Recommended Posts

I followed the instructions about Alfred not finding my apps in Catalina, but it's still not finding them. I performed the steps about an hour ago. Is it just a matter of waiting until the Alfred's database has been updated?

 

Using Alfred 4.0.8 on macOS 10.15.2 after a clean install of the OS.

 

Thanks,

@Chivalry Welcome to the forum :)

 

Could you please first type "reload" into Alfred to refresh the application cache after rebuilding your Mac's index? How long ago had you installed Catalina? If it was very recent, it's possible that macOS was still in the process of performing its first indexing.

 

If the issue persists after reloading, please let me know whether all apps or only specific ones are missing from your results, and I'll help you further :)

 

Cheers,

It's finding them now. In case it's relevant for the future, I clean installed the OS at about 1 pm, so my post was about 5 hours after that. I had done the reload as instructed by the blog post, didn't do it again, just tried launching one of the newly installed apps after waking the laptop up this today.

 

Thanks,

Chuck
