 +  - **Expanded mode**: where you can search through the applications installed on your system and view the command history.

 +In the collapsed view the Application Finder only shows a search entry, the icon of the selected application and Close and Launch buttons. As you type in the entry, it will search known applications,​ the command history and custom actions, showing possible matches in a popup menu. When only a single match is found, it will be automatically completed in the entry and the respective icon will be shown.
