Numbers has stopped showing up in Launchpad. How can I add it back?

  • Is it still installed in /Applications? Did you search through all pages of Launchpad? – nohillside Oct 29 '13 at 20:09
  • Yes, it's still installed in /Applications and runs properly. I performed a search within Launchpad and it's nowhere to be found. – Donnie Oct 29 '13 at 20:28

Just type your application name in Launchpad's search box found near the top of every Launchpad screen. The icon for the desired App should be displayed on a new screen by itself - click and drag it to the desired location in Launchpad.

A commandline call may help as well - but be warned that it'll rebuild the Launchpad from scratch and will remove any customizations you've added:

 rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db; killall Dock
  • The Launchpad rebuild did the trick. :) – Donnie Oct 29 '13 at 20:31
