Meet LaunchBar

In this chapter, I introduce you to LaunchBar, a powerful tool with a simple interface. You’ll learn how to install and invoke LaunchBar, and you’ll meet the bar, the interface you see in LaunchBar.

Next, you’ll learn the Six Superpowers of LaunchBar: abbreviation searching, browsing, and sub-searching, as well as Send To, Instant Send, and Staging. You’ll also get advice for how you can Tweak the Interface and Launch at Login.

Even if you’re a long-time LaunchBar user, you should read this chapter, as you will likely discover important features that you’ve overlooked—or that are new in LaunchBar 6. Really. All my editors have.
