Find Folder — Search by Folder Name Workflow

Recommended Posts

Find Folder

Search by folder name.



That doesn't solve what I was going for.  Searching for folders isn't a problem, alfred does a good job of that already.  Its searching non-spotlight indexed folders, just for the file names that it stumbles on.


Again, like a massive media library that lives on a NAS.  Regardless, my solution I posted above has been working well enough that I don't have to care any more.

I wanted to implement this for a while now, but kept putting it off. Didn't know it was this simple :). Thanks!

Anyone else having trouble with the Find Folder workflow? I just noticed it wasn't working. It's so simple it makes me think it's an Alfred bug? Tried restarting Alfred, changing the keyword to something else and then back to "f"... and deleting the "public.folder" type and re-adding a folder to it. Nothing works. I also tried another workflow with the same functionality "Simple Folders Filter" Nada


I'm on macOS 10.14.4 and Alfred 4.04

@Aadako: Please don't start new threads for problems with workflows. It clutters up the forum. Comment in the existing workflow thread where the author and other users will see it.


EDIT: I've merged the threads.

@Aadako I just tried replying to your email and your mailbox bounced it saying you're over quota.


The additional details you provided by email (with 'f' returning non folder results) suggests you have another keyword configured for 'f', so changing the keyword to something more distinct should have sorted the issue.


If you're still experiencing these issues, have you tried reindexing your Mac yet?
