MacMost Now 758: Quickly Launch Apps With LaunchPad

In Mountain Lion you can now quickly search for apps by name in LaunchPad. This, in conjunction with the keyboard shortcut for LaunchPad, can make it quick and easy to launch apps. Organizing your apps in LaunchPad is limited, but the search function makes it irrelevant as you no longer have to look for apps by icon.

    Nice tips. I use Alfred for this, which also has other nice features. But I’m wiling to try Lauchpad after seeing this video.

    Gary. I have learnt more about using my Apple products from you than any other source. Your videos are real useful. In fact my wife worries that I always seem to be watching them (untrue)!

      OS X 10.7.x is Lion. That’s what you have. OS X 10.8.x is Mountain Lion. This is a new feature of Mountain Lion.

    Another easy way to access launchpad is to use the grab motion if you have purchased the touchpad on the imac, mac pro or mac mini, or you have the macbook pro. Then simply type what you need.
