Quick View with Alfred

Quick View with Alfred on macOS

I’ve been using Alfred on macOS to locate and open files for years now. It’s quick, efficient and just the sort of tool any serious Mac user should use. One thing I didn’t realise though was that when searching for files, you can perform a Quick View in the same vein as the native Finder application. 

All you have to do is type in your search keys as normal and when the potential results are listed, press or ⌘+Y to bring up the Quick View.

When I found out about this, I did a quick search online to see how many other ‘one-key’ shortcuts were available within Alfred that I had neglected over the years and I was pleasantly surprised! I’m going to play with some of them and report back on the ones I think you may find most useful.
