Can't move file from Desktop with Tab

Post by tabba » Thu Jun 23, 2011 12:05 am

I activate Launchbar, use command-G to grab the file from my desktop (in this case, a powerpoint), and then press Tab to send it to another folder. But the only choices I get are Powerpoint, Keynote, and Firefox. Is there a setting that has to be active or whatever so that I can use tab to just move the file?

After you've pressed Tab, have you tried typing "desktop" to select it as the target for the move action?

I think pressing Tab initially only shows you the programs that can directly handle the item you have selected.

Also, have a look in the Launchbar Help for the Instant Send method of selecting files. It's faster than using Cmd & G.
