    Recently had reinstall issues and have lost all my shortcuts. Is there a way to retrieve them from somewhere in the system? Running Mac OS 10.9.5 Thank you!

    Fetch keeps shortcuts in a file named com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist, which is stored in the Preferences folder inside the Library folder of your home folder. Do you have a copy of that file from a backup?

    Thanks,

    Thanks, Jim. While I do have Time Capsule/Time Machine used for backup, I cannot find that file for the life of me! I think something has drastically changed but I'm still looking. Thank you so much for your help!

    To find those files in Time Machine, choose "Go to Folder…" from the Go menu in the Finder and enter:

    ~/Library/Preferences

    and click Go. Then invoke Time Machine to look at past versions of that folder.

    Good luck!

    Okay, Jim, I was just sharing my screen with Apple and it appears that I should download the Fetch program and reinstall, since the plist simply does not exist. By doing so, I am hoping that it will provide the location of the former shortcuts but if not, at least it will be set properly for the future, which it is not now. Can you please advise how or where to redownload?

    You can download Fetch from:

    http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/download/latest

    It doesn't matter where you install it on your Mac, but I usually put it in the Applications folder.

    Thanks,
