Alfred Hat Tips
The one in which you launch multiple apps or files
Working on a project and want to launch all files that pertain to it? Have a list of apps that you need to fire up any time you start work on this project?
You don’t need to open these one at a time.
Assign the same Spotlight Comment to each of these apps or files (do this under “Get Info” when you Ctrl-click on them or see our help page for troubleshooting) and then set a keyboard shortcut in Alfred that will Action all visible results (under Preferences > Keyboard > General - towards the bottom). 
For example, as a writer I may want to launch Scrivener, Evernote, Google Chrome and Reeder to get my creative juices flowing! Adding the Spotlight Comment “wwrite” will then allow me to search just for these (see screenshot above) and hitting Cmd+Return will launch all of them at once. 
Note: If you want to mix launching apps and files together, make sure that you’ve got the appropriate file types selected to show in Default Results, otherwise you’d need to use keywords “find” and “open” to search for documents.
