To get started, we're going to need to open the Dock, which is located at the bottom of the screen on any new Mac. It may be hidden, so just moving the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen should reveal it.
On the screen in this example, there is a black "Q" with a blue inner circle. This is the icon for the QuickTime Player. It's there because the system is currently open, and we're recording a screen capture.
This concludes our tutorial on accessing QuickTime using the Launchpad function on the Mac OS X Yosemite. For additional help, or if you have questions, comments or suggestions, please let us know in the area provided below the tutorial.
As we can see, we are currently in the "Applications" section, which is indicated on the left side. Not all Macs are configured exactly in the same way, so this screen could look a bit different when it opens.
In the event that there are quite a few applications, or we simply don't have time to look for QuickTime, or we can't find the icon, we use the "Search" box at the top right-hand side of the window. This box has a black magnifying glass next to the word "Search".
This concludes our tutorial on accessing QuickTime through the Finder area of your Mac running OS X Yosemite. If you have any additional questions, comments or suggestions, please leave them in the area provided below, and a member of our team will make sure to get back to you.
