Applications are not appearing in search

Recommended Posts

Since the recent update I find that even though I have ONLY the applications box checked, Alfred is not finding many of my apps. Maybe I need to change the settings but sure don't know what to set them as since the only one checked is the applications. Any ideas how to get ALL applications to show up?

If all the applications are within your search scope, there could be an indexing issue. First thing to try is to reindex OS X from the shortcut in Alfred's Advanced preferences > "Rebuild OS X Metadata", then typing "reload" into Alfred. It may take up to an hour, but this should fix things!


Let me know how you get on :)
