Create special single-click-to-launch Dock folders
Authored by: redclawx on Feb 02, '06 09:34:17AM

Or you could just set up a folder and name it "Launcher". This is what we do at our College. A new way of doing an old concept. Basically, we create the Launcher folder in /Users/Shared/ Inside the launcher folder we create sub-folders, (Audio Video, Graphics, Internet, etc...) and inside of those sub-folder we put aliases to the corresponding applications. The Launcher folder is then dragged to the Dock. Now when any user clicks on the Dock/Launcher they can easily get to the most common applications. Click-and-hold and you've got nested folders.

I myself don't use the launcher, as I've gotten used to using Sherlock to launch my applications. But for the above setup, it works great and allows for a common setup across different Mac OS versions.
