Beginning with Finale v25 the Finale installer will not create an icon that appears in Launchpad. This issue has been reported to our development team.
You can still access the program from your Mac's Applications folder. You can reach your Applications folder by clicking the Finder icon on your computer's dock and choosing (from the Finder program toolbar) Go > Applications.
You can drag the Finale application to your computer's dock so it can be easily accessed without going through the Applications folder.
