delete a file in the navigation menu

Recommended Posts


is it possible to directly delete a file in the navigation menu setting a keyboard button to do it (backspace for example).

I 'll explain better:


I browse my downloads folder in the alfred navigation menu, to delete a file I have to press the tab button to enter in the options panel (Copy to, move to, delete, email to etc...) and then I can delete the file but Alfred menu bar goes away. 

I need a way to delete multiple files, the better way IMHO is to have the way to set a button (for example the backspace) to do so instead of entering another menu options to make an action on the file.


Is there a way to do it?

thanks I knew the buffer but I find it not so useful 

I have to press three times instead of one ( 1 alt+arrow up 2 tab 3 delete).


Take a look at this thread: http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/7416-delete-file-with-keyword-delete-filename/


You can use the trash workflow and set your download folder as search scope. That should be what you were looking for :)

Else deanishe explains the way Alfred behaves and why
