Finding a .app File on a Mac

Solved!
Go to solution

Neither "List Folder", nor "Recursive File List.vi" will find .app files on a Mac.

Is there a way to do it?

Applications are not files, despite that Finder won’t let you open them, they are bundles as Apple calls them and actually folders.

Ahh.  Thank you.

So my solution is to use the "folder names" output of "List Folder".

It turns out you can look inside them: Right-click and select "Show Package Contents".
