Hi Jillian,

 

To change your Alfred hotkey, pop up Alfred by clicking on the bowler hat in your menu bar and choose Preferences.

 

In the General preferences tab, click in the hotkey box and set another hotkey. It's recommended to choose a hotkey that isn't used for something as common as Cmd + A, which is universally used for "Select All" on Mac. If you'd like to use Cmd + Space, which is a popular combination, take a look at this page:

Let me know how you get on :)

 

Cheers,

Vero

Thanks to you both for answering. It is nice to know that the forum is here!

 

I discovered that, for some reason, my attached keyboard did not work in that field, but I just used the keyboard on my laptop (the computer I use all the time) and I was able to change the hotkey! Sheesh!
