Old Clipboard History items are only deleted when restarting Alfred

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

All my Clipboard History items are set to be removed after 24 hours. Yesterday I noticed I had plain text items from the past 2 months in my history. The old items disappeared after I restarted Alfred.


Is this a bug, or has Alfred always worked this way? I would expect the old items to be deleted periodically.


macOS Mojave 10.14.6

Alfred 4.0.9 1144

@Tsunami Alfred checks timestamps and removes old clipboard history after use. As such, when you paste an item from Clipboard History, some short amount of time after that, old items will be deleted. The same check occurs when relaunching Alfred.


You just need to make use and paste from your clipboard history for Alfred to actively maintain it :)
