Creating a Shortcut
There are two ways to create a shortcut to a file in another location.
The first method is a little more time consuming so the second method
is the recommended method of choice.
1. First you must find the file or folder that you want to create a
Next you must select the item and then choose the Make Alias option from the file
menu. The MacOS will create the alias alongside the original item.
Chances are this is not where you want the alias so you will have to drag it to the desired location is a bother.
2. The second option is to hold down the Option and Command keys and then
start dragging the original icon to the new location where you want
the alias to be. The cursor will change to include a small curved arrow
which indicates an alias. When you release the mouse button, the MacOS will create
an alias in the new location.
Add/Remove Items from Launcher First of all you must have Launcher Version 2.7 or higher to be
able to customize it.
In order to add an item to the Launcher you need to drag an icon over the Launcher window. This
will put an "alias" of the item in the actual Launcher while
leaving the original item behind.
In order to remove an item from the Launcher you need to hold down the Option key, click on the button, and
then drag it to the Trash bin.
Lastly you may want to change the size of the items in the Launcher.
To do this merely hold down the Command key & click in any blank space in the
window. A pop up window will then appear - choose a button size from
this pop up window.
