I must admit I usually only activate the macOS Launchpad when I accidentally click its icon instead of the one next to it.

Launchpad doesn’t get much love from Mac power users (there are plenty of other efficient ways to launch Mac apps) and Apple really hasn’t touched the feature in years. But it’s a feature I use regularly on my Mac — after making a few adjustments.
And his article goes on to describe how he makes Launchpad slightly more useful.
So will I use it more in the future? Probably not, but I have a soft spot for articles that find uses for unloved apps and maybe there are people out there who’ve just been dying to get to grips with Launchpad.
Playing around with Launchpad did at least remind me to delete some long-unused apps I had sitting around on my machine.
