How do you navigate and select via keyboard installed applications in Unity? Previously, I added a keyboard shortcut to open the "Applications" menu, and then I could quickly navigate to whatever application I need to open. I can find no similar functionality in Unity. I can't even find a listing of installed apps.

The only way I can find to launch an app is to click that "Ubuntu" logo box in the upper-right hand corner, and then type in the applications name to search for it, which is a little cumbersome.

  • You can click on the applications button in the dash to get to your application:

    You can get there by hitting the Tab key after you've invoked the dash, or click on the little icon. Or you can get there directly by using the Super-A keyboard shortcut.
