Alfred does not respond to the global hotkey


Recommended Posts

I am using Alfred 4.6.1, macOS 12.0 Monterey on a M1 mac.


Alfred was all working alright until a few days ago -- now it does not respond to the Alfred Hotkey (Cmd+Space in my case).


Alfred 4 is running well in the background, i.e., when I open the Alfred application via Applications folder or Spotlight, or `open -a "Alfred 4"`, the window opens and everything is okay. But it never responds to the hotkey. I tried changing global hotkey to something else (that is never likely to be in conflict with other apps), but no luck. If reboot the machine it works, but shortly a while after the same phenomenon happens again (Alfred does not respond).


I am absolutely sure this is NOT a conflict with other applications. I checked https://www.alfredapp.com/help/troubleshooting/cmd-space/ and they are all clear. All other applications that also use (other) global hotkey works perfectly fine. How can I troubleshoot this?


Thank you.
