Show all installed applications in the /Applications folder using keyboard shortcut.

Desired solution:

Potential utility/tool that runs in the background to show all applications upon keyboard shotcut. I know there has been a software that does this but do not remember the name.

Any suggestions?

  • See Get a complete list of all applications installed to understand why this is not as simple as it sounds (well, the keyboard shortcut is, but only if the base question is answered). – nohillside Aug 23 '13 at 18:30
  • OS X has an app that does this called Launchpad. Do you want something more? – Jojo Aug 23 '13 at 18:40
  • Finally found the application after hours of searching. It's called Bevy and is available at the Mac App Store. – kexxcream Aug 24 '13 at 6:14

As I understand the question, the shortcut is built-in to OSX:

  • Switch to Finder (clicking on the desktop is quick)
  • cmd+shift+A

This brings up the Applications folder in the Finder. (Or were you asking for something else?)
