Help getting started with Alfed and File Search


Recommended Posts

I tried Alfred a few years ago.  Recently updated it and bought the power pack.  I have an engineering degree and have done some programming from time to time when necessary.  My hope is/was that Alfred would be a good search tool for my local hard drive and personal cloud.  It seems kind of silly to me to pull up Alfred and enter a word and just get results from three search engines that Alfred conducted for me.  Am I missing something in terms of setting up Alfred to do a deep search of my own library?  I'd love to have a tool that search my own local collection of writings and documents - pdf, word docs, google docs, spreadsheets, et al.

Have you looked at the help? Take a look at just the first couple pages and I think you'll be on your way, including how to search for and open a file:
