Application finder menu
Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 months ago

Okay, so you went to Finder > Applications, scroll through the applications and cannot find Time Capsule?

Okay, please press Cmd + Spacebar. This should bring up your Spotlight. Type Time Machine in there and it should come up.

Mac Support Specialist: Ricky Expert, Computer Hardware Engineer replied 8 months ago

Okay, Time Machine typically doesn't show in Finder Applications, but you can add it to your menu bar by doing the following:

Go to Apple menu (top left) > System Preferences, then click Time Machine.

Check the box that says "Show Time Machine in menu bar".

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
