Finder search stopped working

Recommended Posts

Ever since I installed Alfred my normal Finder Search doesn't work any more. I usually go to a folder and start searching in the search dialog of that window. Files that either have the tags or names that contain the word I'm looking for will pop up. Nothing happens now.

@Kris Alfred simply performs queries on the macOS Metadata, and at no point modifies the configuration, so what you describe is purely coincidental. Having said that, our file search troubleshooting guide will still be relevant for you, as this guide covers fixing the underlying macOS Metadata.




In your case, step 3 and 4 are most relevant.
