10 Upgrade Problems Of Mac OS X Mountain Lion

What Is LaunchPad?

Introduced with Lion, the LaunchPad automatically scans a system's apps and puts their icons into this great looking iPad-like array. This isn't really a pitfall, per se, but it could throw users a curve if they're not expecting it. Arranging apps into folders works the same as on iPad and iPhone; just drag one app icon onto another, and a folder is created containing both. To remove an app from a folder, drag it out. To remove an app from the LaunchPad, long-click it until it jiggles and click delete. An app can be quickly located by typing the first few letters of its name.
