I want to add a Finder shortcut to my Launchpad, but I am unable to do it.

Is there any way to create an alias for Finder in OS X El Capitan?


Run the following command in Terminal (it will create a symbolic link for all users):

sudo ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app /Applications

Or just for currently logged on user:

ln -s /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app ~/Applications

Finder will appear in the applications list opened with Launchpad.
