When I click on Finder, and open up my Applications folder, there are NO Applications listed. Can anyone tell me what has happened? And how I might get them to reappear? Thank you!
We need more info regarding your Mac and which version of OS X it's running, however, it sounds like you may have changed your user name or home folder. Did you?
I did not change my user name. I don't think I changed the home folder. How would I know if it was changed?
You wouldn't know if you can log on to your computer without using your name and password. In other words, when you boot the computer it immediately goes to your desktop. If you need a name and password to log on and you can log on, then your user name and home folder are OK. But the fact that your Applications folder is empty says something has happened either with the account or the folder itself. Can you launch an application from your Dock?
When I log in, I still need my password to get into my account. It is the only account on the computer.
I am still able to use applications in the Dock. However they are no longer listed under applications.
