I can open the Feedback assistant app from the path /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications/Feedback Assistant.app but it is not visible in the Launchpad in Mojave 10.14.6 .

How do I make it visible and open it directly from the Launchpad rather than having to pin it onto the Dock?

  • Feedback Assistant does show in my LaunchPad, but I have it in my Dock as well. It's possible that having it in the Dock will also put in Launchpad. Whether LaunchPad will 'remember' it if you remove the app from the Dock afterwards, is something you could try. – benwiggy Sep 2 at 14:03
  • @benwiggy the Launchpad does not "remember" the application even if it is pinned to the dock. – Kewal Shah Sep 2 at 14:27

If you place an alias of the Feedback Assistant in the, e.g., Applications folder in Finder, it will show in Launchpad, without having to pin it to the Dock.

In Finder, navigate to, or use: Go > Go to Folder…

/System/Library/CoreServices/Applications

Select the Feedback Assistant app and then drag and drop while pressing ⌥⌘ to the Applications folder to create an alias.

Feedback Assistant will now appear in Launchpad.


Note that while it will now appear on the last screen of Launchpad nonetheless, it can be dragged and dropped to where you'd like it on the screen or different screen.

  • This solution works but weirdly if you open an alias link from the Launchpad the application launches but the application windows does not appear. You need to manually click on the dock icon to open the window on top of any existing windows. Simply copy pasting the entire application in the applications folder instead of creating an alias solved the issue. – Kewal Shah Sep 2 at 14:41
  • @Kewal Shah, When I click the alias of Feedback Assistant from Launchpad, the Welcome to Feedback Assistant sign in window is front and center, without having to click its Dock Tile. – user3439894 Sep 2 at 14:48

    Yes, I stand corrected. It takes a while to open for my MacOS. I guess I just did not wait. – Kewal Shah Sep 2 at 14:56

  1. Go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications.
  2. Copy the Feedback Assistant app using + C.
  3. Paste it in the Applications folder + V.

Viola! Now when you click on the Feedback Assistant app from the Launchpad the application will open immediately.
