Open folders in new Finder tab in Mavericks

Hi, since Mavericks introduced tabs in Finder it would be really cool if I could open new folders via "open" and "find" in a new finder tab instead of a completely new finder window.

 

Since updating to Mavericks I have put finder in fullscreen mode and just open new tabs for new folders, it would be cool if Alfred could help me in this way.

I really really would like to see this feature (so much so that I made an account on this forum just to ask for it!). I think an even better way to do it would be to have a checkable option: "By default, Alfred will open folders in new tabs." or something to that effect.

I agree that would be the perfect solution. And I made this account to suggest the feature, I've been lurking for a while though ;)

Precisely what I'm looking for. I just UN-installed XtraFinder hastily presuming Alfred had the new functionality of Mavericks covered.

 

Please don't make me reinstall a 3rd party utility just to make Alfred work with Mavericks' finder system.

I've been keeping an eye on this issue and I have a ticket in my bug tracker to keep investigating it, but at the moment, it doesn't look like there is a lightweight API way of achieving this in OS X. If this becomes [satisfactorily] possible, I will definitely add it to Alfred.

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Still hoping for this – maybe in Alfred 3? I’m currently using a file action workflow for this which works well and is fast enough for me, but it’d be nicer if it were an inbuilt option / if you could set the workflow as being applied automatically when you open a folder so you don’t have to press tab and select the workflow.

Can you share that workflow @garblewarble?
