I did find a substitute for spare dock, as Drag Thing is gone (so sad of great apps of all time)

But hot links any recommendations? Butler are Alfred are very non-intuitive and difficult.

Could you explain what you mean by "hot links"?


On a Mac since 1984.
Currently: 27" iMacs, Macbook Air, macOS 10.15.x,; iPhones, iPods and iPads galore!

Thanks Ira. Hot links, if I'm saying it right, You enter a keystroke and then the app launches.

The term Hot Link generally refers to a link on a page that either takes the user to another location or pulls in data, typically a graphic, from another site or location. What you are describing would be more generally is referred to as an application launcher. Search the App Store for application launcher and you will find a hundred or so applications and ranging in price from free to around $6, using an equally wide range of techniques. Hopefully one or more of these will meet your needs.

Searching for "hot key" may find apps more specific to kevs's needs.
