How To Launch Apps On the Mac

If an app isn't in your Dock, you can easily find it and launch it one of several common ways. You can look for it in the Applications folder, use LaunchPad or search with Spotlight. If you use an app often, add it to the Dock to easier access.

    I hadn’t thought of using Spotlight this way, but shall in future. Thanks.

    I, too, had not thought of Spotlight to launch apps. I have been using Launchpad. Thanks…it will be my new way.

    And of course simply clicking on a file in Finder will open the correct app, or right clicking on it gives you a choice. Not Apples preferred way, possibly. I wish Spotlight didn’t produce so many web hits first, slowing it down, when I really want it to search my computer for lost files, notes, emails first!
