Hi everybody!!

I just want to know if theres any way to select wich apps should appear in the Launchpad in Lion, cause it's really annoying to see a lot of thing that you don't need [i.e. a lot of apps that are installed along with World of warcraft, or the uninstallers for each app from Adobe CS5].

Thx for your help!
QUOTE Thanks

I think Launchpad shows all Apps in the Applications folder, both the main one and the one in the User Home folder.

Presumably if you move unwanted Apps into a different folder, they will not show up in Launchpad.

And by doing that, all other apps that are related to the one I move wouldn't crash?

If you mean WOW, I think all parts of that are in a folder called 'World of Warcraft'. You would have to move this folder. I doubt it would work if you take parts of it from that folder.
