Selecting Items

LaunchBar offers a variety of methods to select a particular item.

You can search for items either by entering arbitrary abbreviations of the item’s name, by browsing LaunchBar’s index or the contents of your hard disk, or by combining these two techniques. Further, LaunchBar provides convenient access to all applications that are currently running, and to those items that have been accessed recently via LaunchBar.

Common Techniques

Speaking the selected item

To get acoustic feedback of the currently selected item you may turn on the “Speak selected item” option in the General pane of LaunchBar Preferences.
