No terminal

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
HI I am new to Apple. I got my Macbook pro yesterday. I draged my terminal from Application>Utilities to Desktop. To my stupidity I deleted the terminal. Now I cannot find the terminal. How do I restore/reinstall the Terminal here.
Thanks in advance.

What do you by "I deleted the terminal"? To delete the Terminal, you must drag it to the Trash and then empty the Trash. If you did not do this, then the Terminal is still there.

The Terminal isn't on your Desktop. And you can't possibly have outright moved it there. Your computer would have prevented you from doing that.

Yep, you didn't do it. You trashed an alias. Applications/Utilities should still be in Applications/Utilities.

No there was not any . I removed the whole app thing. both from dock and finder I could not see it. Hence I had to reinstall the OSX. Now I got it back by reinstalling. Thanks to all!

You would have had to USE the Terminal to delete the Terminal, which is also impossible. You didn't delete it and wasted your time reinstalling the OS.

What about Spotlight?

Sure it's possible. If you have an administrator account and try to drag the Terminal to the Desktop, you just get one of those authentication dialogs (just like you would get if you tried to use sudo in the terminal.
