After reinstall, Launchpad and Applications folder are not synced.


Recommended Posts

After a reinstallation of Mac ML 10.8.4, launchpad has all applications that I installed before & after the reinstallation, but Applications folder has only applications that I installed after reinstallation. Is there any fix? I have provided screenshots below.


Screen Shots:



Launchpad View (I only provided one page)



Applications folder view. There is less than the Launchpad folder

do you have another user account or mac partition which has the apps? they might be importing from there. so applications folder would only show what is local in that volume

I only have two user accounts. Both do not show all of the apps in the Applications folder.


I did not install any secondary Mac partition.


I do not know where the apps are coming from. Once I figure that out, I want to restore them back to Applications folder.
