Keylue (Key Clue): Alfred 2 Workflow for Menu Bar and Keyboard Maestro Hot Key Search

It is like KeyCue which helps you memorize or quickly launch hot keys. But it is still too much to pinpoint a shortcut from a 50+ entries with your eyeball. This workflow gives the freedom to search and filter the results and execute them from Alfred.


  1. keyword kc: Show menu items and Keyboard Maestro hot keys. Hit Enter to execute.

    The feedback results for each application are cached for speedy response. The cached results are reloaded if it is older than an hour.

  2. To refresh cached feedback, begine or end the {query} with ! like:

    • kc ! {query}
    • kc {query} !
  3. To filter , , set up a typing expansion using TextExpander, Keyboard Maestro, etc.

  4. To show only Keyboard Maestro hot keys, type Keyboard Maestro: in the {query}.

  1. keyword km: show Keyboard Maestro macros

It is equal to kc --all -k {query}


  • ⚫ Menu item
  • (blue_circle) Services
  • ⚪ Keyboard Maestro global hotkeys
  • 🔴 Keyboard Maestro local hotkeys

  1. Keyboard Maestro contextual hot keys for current application

Keyboard Maestro contextual hot keys cannot be retrieved from Alfred window because Alfred takes over the focus of current application. A workaround is to temporarily activate the current application, retrieve the contextual hot keys and reactivate Alfred.
