Increase width of toolbar

Recommended Posts

There is. In that panel hover at area of the shadow of the widow. You’ll see “Window Width” appear at the bottom, along with current size, instructions, and border color. Click and drag up or down at that time to change the size of the window.

You can't change the width of the default themes. You need to first duplicate it and then all of the instructions you see on this thread will apply.


Right click on the theme and then click Duplicate Theme.


Give your new theme a name and click "Save". 


You can then resize the window as well as change other theme properties as other folks have mentioned.

Hello. I am attempting to do the same thing of making my custom appearance wider. I do not see the option to make the window wider,

only the padding. I have attached a clip. 


How do I make the window wider? I'm on 3.7.1



Thank you!

Welcome @dp_ucsd,


In the future, if you found a relevant topic please don’t open a new one — that splits the conversation and doesn’t help whoever visits the old one. Instead, comment on the one you found. I’ve merged the two.


As to your question, move the mouse cursor to the left or right of the window and you’ll see a large green rectangle indicating you can change the width.

@dp_ucsd adding to what @vitor said, you'll need to duplicate one of the default themes (or create a brand new theme) as the default themes are not editable. Once you have a custom theme selected, move the mouse around the Alfred window within the theme editor and you'll see a highlight for the item you'll be editing (resizing, colouring etc).

Hi, I'm on version 4.3.4 of the app and I'm unable to increase the width. 
When I try to move the mouse over from the outside to the search bar as shown by @vitor's gif, it doesnt' show the window resizing options. It just shows the options attached below.
