Launchpad can be a powerful app launcher, but it requires that you move the cursor over to its icon in the Dock and click it to start. But you can assign a keyboard shortcut to do this. In System Preferences, Keyboard, Shortcuts, choose Launchpad & Dock on the left and enable the Launchpad shortcut. Assign something like Command+Shift+A or Command+Shift+Up, or anything you like that isn’t already in use. Then use that shortcut, type the first few letters of an app, and hit Return to launch any app from the keyboard.
