If you'd like, we can do a remote session where I can walk you through the process of doing this on your Mac. Let me know if that sounds good and I will send you a link so we can get started.

Ben its me---Tim It doesn't look like i can join your session

Sorry about that, thanks for trying. I think I can still help you with step by step instructions if you can tell me what Yahoo application you are trying to add to your Launchpad. Is it Yahoo Messenger, or just a shortcut to

Thanks for clarifying. There are two screens on your Mac where you can launch applications. The first one is the desktop (the home screen you normally see when you close all your apps), the other being the Launchpad. The Launchpad is the screen you can access by clicking the Launchpad icon in your dock and opens another screen with links to applications on your Mac. The Launchpad can only launch Applications, so you cannot add a web shortcut there.

You can however add a shortcut to your desktop by just dragging the link in your browsers address bar to your desktop. To do this, just open in your browser, move the browser so you can see your desktop, and just drag and drop the address text (the part that says in the address bar) to your desktop. A link will be created on the desktop that will launch whenever you click it.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be more than happy to assist further. Thanks again!
