Show "Tags" results in a folder

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


I would like to be able to search for a Tag in Alfred and see all related tagged files in a Finder window. So far I can only have the results to show in a list in the Alfred window, and from there I can only do one of two things: either select one of the results to open it, or show it in Finder. This last option does show the selected file, but among all the other files in that folder, regardless of their own tag.

What I would like, on the other hand, is this: say I type "tags bank" in Alfred, I would like to have the option to open a Finder window that shows all the files tagged with "bank", something like what you get when using the search field in a Finder window.

Is this at all possible? I do hope that I was able to explain myself.


Thank you so much.


All the best,

You need to do a bit of UI scripting with Finder to achieve that.


Here's an example workflow that does what you ask.


I'm looking to do just this exactly and came across this thread, but the link is dead. Can you point me in the right direction?
