How to trigger an action file (in the action panel) with a keyboard shortcut?

Recommended Posts

Let say I have an action file that lets me archive the file I selected in Finder.

Is there a way, once the file is selected, to archive this file just by hitting a shortcut key I would have set?

Thank you.


You could. Alfred's hotkeys are designed such that they can read the current selection in Finder and pass that off to a workflow (run script) so that the desired action could be fulfilled there. File names are passed as a tab delimited string into the workflow.
