    Is there a way to make a list of all my apps in my Applications folder? (Besides typing them out manually of course!)

    Depending on what you want, you could do:

    Open Terminal
    type:

    cd /applications
    ls
    cd utilities
    ls

    And so on for any other sub-folders... and you could copy and paste the output into whatever you want....

    If you want to know all of the applications on your active drives, you can use System Profiler to give you the information.
