I have LaunchBar auto select anything that is dropped into my downloads folder. I wanted to run a Hazel rule but only on files with a certain tag and I want to do this with LaunchBar.


Tagging is supported since LaunchBar 6, released June 11, 2014.

  • You either send a file or a selection of files from Finder to LB (alt + holding space) or select a file (or – with nightly build 6.1 – a selection of files) within LB.

  • Then press tab, type a part of the Finder tag name and add the tag by pressing return. You have also the option to replace existing tags with the new tag.

You can display a file’s tags by pressing after selecting the file in LB.

LaunchBar 6.3 added support to work with multiple tags at once.
