Launch Applications From the Spotlight Menu

To quickly launch an application without even touching your mouse, press Command+Space to activate the Spotlight menu at the upper right corner of your screen. Then type the first few letters of the application name, such as “Tex” for TextEdit. Type as few or as many as you need for the application to show up in the menu as the “Top Hit.” Then press Return on your keyboard to launch the application.
