Sorry if this has already been covered - I googled and searched the forums and couldn't find a similar issue. I just started using Alfred for its productivity features, but I need the "date modified" sorting to be accurate in Finder.

 

  • What you were doing when the issue happenedsearching a folder name to open it in Finder
  • Whether you were able to replicate it a second time by performing the same action: Yes
  • Include any screenshots that might help us:

Before searching for the "Sites" folder in Alfred: http://i.imgur.com/y4yGXDj.png

  • Include the Alfred version & build number you are using: 2.6 (374) 
  • Include your OS X version: OS X 10.6.8

Hi there,

 

This is done by design to help massage the search results to be more accurate from OS X's metadata server. You can actually turn off touching the folder in Alfred's Features > File Search > Advanced preferences: "Touch folders after opening them".

 

Cheers,

Andrew
