Is there any way to hide an app from the Launchpad in Yosemite? I don't want to delete it or something like that I just want to hide apps that I don't use frequently, and I have a lot of them, putting them in a folder that I ignore makes the Launchpad slow to process, any solution to get rid of them without deleting them?
If you feel that your Launchpad is filled with apps, you can make folders in Launchpad by moving a app over another app.
How to do this shown at wikihow, this is done in Mac OS X Lion, but will work in Yosemite.
What the content of link describes is how to make folders in Launchpad, this is easily done by moving an app (inside Launchpad) over another app. This will make a folder with both apps in it.
Prepending a dot (.) will make the folder or file became hidden. You can do it using Finder or shell. Just change the app name, prepending a dot. To unhide the app, just remove the dot. Note that Launchpad will take some time to see the changes. If it doesn't work, try to reboot.
Tip: in Finder, you can toggle to see hidden files using keyboard shortcut CMD + SHIFT + .
cd /Applications sudo mv YourApp.app .YourApp.app
As you may know, mv command takes 2 parameters: from and to.
To unhide is similar:
cd /Applications sudo mv .YourApp.app YourApp.app
Just Move them out of the Applications Folder. Copy an app from the Applications folder and paste it in a folder like Downloads or Documents.
