Give Your Files Helpful Nicknames to Find Them Faster

What's the solution when the app you want to launch is Photos, but you keep calling it "iPhoto" - out of habit or nostalgia for the old days - or when you frequently misspell an app's name?

You let Alfred do the legwork of launching the right app or file for you by creating the simplest workflow ever!

Keywords to launch an app or file with a nickname

Create a simple workflow using Templates > Files and Apps > "Launch file group from keyword", or create your own blank workflow. Connect a Keyword Input to a Launch Apps/Files Action and fill in the details.

You can add multiple object pairs to this particular workflow, connecting each app you want to launch to its respective alternative keyword.
