using Alfred to open specific safari profiles in MacOS Sonoma

Recommended Posts



Now that MacOS Sonoma is released to the public, I'm wondering if there's a way to open specific safari profiles in MacOS Sonoma using Alfred? Right now I have two safari profiles, one for personal and one for work. If I have both profiles open at the same time and I minimize both windows, then I type "safari" after triggering Alfred, it'll just open the one that I last minimized. Is there a way to specify which safari profile I want to open and expand that window?


Not sure if this makes sense, but please provide any information that might be helpful, thank you!

maybe you could create a workflow which uses key combos to change the profile in the meantime...


Something like a List Filter as trigger (which has to be populated manually since Safari offering an api) to select the profile.

Then you could use a keyboard combo to open a new window in the given profile.  With ⌘ + ⌥ + ⇧ + <number> where 0 is your personal profile and 1 to x are the other profiles you can open a new window in a specific profile.


Maybe looking at something like the OpenIn app (haven't tested it myself) might help too.

That worked!


I'd like to refine it to switch to the open tab instead of always opening a new window but it's a start. 


It's here if others want to take a look





it's nice and I tried it, if you find a clue to open tab instead of windows. 
still your workflow is important, I use it as start and then adding tacos by cmd+N
