Launch Apps In Spotlight With Initials

You probably know that you can use Command+Space and then type the first few letters of an app’s name, then Return to launch it when it appears as the top hit. But you can also use the initials of multi-word app names. So qp for QuickTime Player, fm for Find My and mw for Microsoft Word. It even works with gb for GarageBand, recognizing the capital B in the name.

    Love it! I can now launch Image Capture with just “ic” though I use it so often just typing “i” works.
