How would I open Terminal using BetterTouchTool? I tried using predefined action: open application, but I can't seem to find the Terminal app.

Use the action "Run Apple Script" for example as a keyboard shortcut and use the following code:

tell application "Terminal" to do script
  • If you want to open a new window (instead of switching to any existing window) then you can use tell application "Terminal" do script " " activate end tell

As user3439894 said, have you tried looking for Terminal in the Utilities folder rather than the applications folder. Hope This Helps :)
