Is there a way to restrict the "in" command to search only in some specific folders?

Recommended Posts



So when I search for "in cucumber" in Alfred, it searches all my files for the word cucumber.. Is there a way to limit this so that it only searches the files in a specific folder (my folder "vegetables" thats located on the desktop for example)?


That would be handy!

Thanks for any answers.

yes, by creating a workflow you can limit your search scope to a folder, file type etc

Thanks! But could you explain further how I would go about it? I don't have any experience with workflows yet they look a bit complicated, but I do have the paid version of Alfred4. My goal would be to only search in PDF-Files of a specific directory. 


Would be great If you could guide me through it.
