Two bowlers! I only want one.


Recommended Posts

I just downloaded and unzipped Alfred 2.02.

I dragged the unzipped Alfred 2.app to my Applications folder.

I started Alfred 2.app.

Now there are two bowlers in my mac menu bar!

In Alfred 2 Preferences screen, I clicked the button for v1 Import: Import settings.

There are still two bowlers in my mac menu bar!

I scanned and scanned AlfredApp.com and Alfredfroum.com.
I found a lot of articles about importing v1 settings.

BUT NOT ONE MENTION OF WHAT I SHOULD DO WITH OLD ALFRED 1.2.

Maybe it is obvious to you.

I am guessing I should just drag old Alferd to the trash.

Will that "just work?"

Will the extra bowler just go away?

Do I need to restart my Mac after trashing old Alfred?

Am I missing some obvious upgrade instructions?

You could just quit Alfred 1 or hide the icon. You'll find it in the settings in Preferences > Opitons > "Hide Menu Bar icon". I had no idea what you meant at first lol, Bowler!

So what is the best way to remove old Aflred 1.2?

Should I just drag the app icon to the trash?

If I use AppZapper will it break my new Alfred 2.02?

Dragging to the trash should do it. There will still be traces of v1 left in your directories but it shouldn't be an issue.
