    Open "terminal"
    How do you open "terminal"? I have tried looking under Go/Applications and Go/Applications/Utilities. But there is nothing listed for "terminal".

    I am using OSX 10.5.8.

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2014, 2.2GHz i7, 16GB RAM, 250GB SSD, OSX 10.9.5 - iPhone 5s 16gb
    Type into spotlight (top right corner) "Terminal" without the exclamation marks, it should bring up the application form there.
    Hope this helps

    I tried that but it doesn't find "terminal" (without the quotes).

    Terminal.app is located at /Applications/Utilities. If it's not there, it has been moved or deleted. Have you moved/deleted anything from that folder recently?

    I'm not aware of ever deleting anything from Applications/Utilities. I know it is in the system because I can see it in Apple/Recent Items and if I click that then it brings it up.

    Then it's simply been moved. Do a search for it using Spotlight - type in Terminal, wait for it to show up, mouse over it and let the tooltip tell you where it is.

    Then just do a good ol' find in Finder and make sure it's searching your whole computer.

    Ahh ... Finder found it on my Desktop. I had so much junk there I didn't see it. I must have moved it there from Utilities instead of copying it. I'll move it back to the utilities folder.
