Paste URL direct from Alfred

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone


I'm trying to figure out if Alfred has a specific functionality. 


Like many of you, I do a crazy amount of email, and I'm constantly searching for something in a browser, copying the URL, and then pasting in an email client. My dream is something like MixMax (chrome + gmail plugin that allows '/' search), or the command+k shortcut in google docs (see image below), which works in any applications.


My question - is there any way using Alfred, to enter a google search term, see the top 10 results, choose one, and then paste that URL, without ever leaving Alfred (and never opening a browser)?


Thanks for any help!


(PS - I understand that the example below is creating a hyperlink. It's just for illustration. I'm interested in pasting the actual URL in any context.)

Thank you vitor! These are great pointers - but my hope was that some industrious soul had already done the work. Perhaps this will spark the innovative spirit in someone else :)
