Move (not sync) Preferences


Recommended Posts

I am replacing my busted Mac, I have installed Alfred on my new machine and now I want to get my Preferences and all the Workflows over. But I don't want to set up syncing as I am not a fan of Dropbox.  What do I need to backup from and to to get the old Preferences into and recognized on the new Mac?

All your stuff is in the Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle.

 

If you’ve set a sync folder, and there’s an Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle in there, Alfred uses that. Otherwise it uses the default location ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred/Alfred.alfredpreferences (Alfred 4+).

 

So all you need to do is move your Alfred.alfredpreferences bundle to the default location and Alfred will use it.
