Open Mac OS X Finder from LaunchPad
Want to open the Finder and your standard desktop Mac OS X windows from LaunchPad? You can, but you have to drag the Finder application into LaunchPad. Here’s how to do this:
- From the Mac OS X desktop, hit Command+Shift+G to bring up “Go To Folder” and enter the following path:
- Within /CoreServices/ locate and drag “Finder.app” to the LaunchPad icon in the Dock
Now LaunchPad will show the standard Finder icon, which if clicked on will open up your default Finder window choice, which is typically “All My Files” in OS X Lion.
