Alfred Not Finding Native Mac Apps

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've been having this issue for sometime and even went away from Alfred for a bit because of it. Alfred isn't finding native mac apps when searching (e.g. Messages, FaceTime, News, etc.).  These show up just fine in Spotlight, I've reloaded the cache and reindexed...all to no avail. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

@EvenStevens Welcome to the forum :)


For us to be able to help you, you'll need to provide more details:

- Which version of macOS are you using?

- Which version of Alfred?

- Is this a new issue on an existing version of macOS or an issue that started when you upgraded to a new OS?


In short, start by ensuring you're using Alfred 4.1.1 (at the time of writing this) as my guess is you're using an older version of Alfred on macOS Catalina. Apple have moved the location of built-in apps in Catalina, which older versions of Alfred won't be aware of.
