Create Alias and Place It ...

Recommended Posts

Is there an action for creating an alias of a file and placing it somewhere? I find that I need to place an alias often on the desktop. Would this be useful to users? Maybe it's already available, and I missed it?




I personally use Alfreds file search in combination with the "Quick File Search Mode", but i've made you a small workflow that let's you select

a file/folder to create a alias for and then a folder where you want it to be saved to.


Here you go(I assume you have Alfred 3): https://www.dropbox.com/s/g4clxs0pmy7p14l/Create%20Alias.alfredworkflow?dl=0

Hi FroZen_X, does it work also to make alias of folders? 


Found a bug that made it not work in some occasion and therefore couldn't work with folders.

Keep in mind that the first filter is set to everything, which can be change to folder only if wanted.


This should work :)
