How to Show Recent Documents


Recommended Posts

How with Alfred do I show recent documents used with an application as does Spotlight? 

Online helps says “press the right arrow” - What right arrow?

Alfred help pages say: 

   Search for the application you're looking for and press the right arrow to show the list of file actions for your app. 

   Choose a file in Alfred's results and press the right arrow (or your customised hotkey) to bring up the Actions panel for it.

 

The keyboard right arrow, bottom row farthest right-side key - had no results.

Preview of folder contents, of pdfs, docs, picture files, etc.

On the bottom right of the keyboard, the ◀▲▼▶ keys. Go into Alfred Preferences → Features → Universal Actions → General → Show Actions to see which keys you have active for it.

Go into Alfred Preferences → Features → File Search → Navigation → Shortcuts to see which keys you have active for it. It can either be the arrow keys or ⌘▼ and ⌘▲.

Same shortcut as the Universal Actions.
