Workflow action: browse item in Alfred


Recommended Posts

I might have missed it, but this is something I used a lot in Alfred v1 and can't find a way to do in the Beta:

Set a hotkey to open Alfred directory browser on a specific path (for instance my home folder). All I can do right now is a hotkey to open that path in Finder.

So... I THINK I know what you are looking for. You want to set a hotkey to be able to open a preset folder in the file navigation?


If so, this is kind of a round about way to do it but you could always connect a hotkey to run an applescript like this:


on alfred_script(q)
delay 0.1
tell application "System Events" to keystroke space using command down
delay 0.5
tell application "System Events" to keystroke "/Applications"

end alfred_script


That will open Alfred and start the browser in /Applications
