    I've had my MacBook Pro for ~2 years and about 6 months after purchasing it, all applications disappeared from the Applications folder when accessed by the Finder sidebar. When I right click on a docked App and select options>show in finder they all appear.

    Any thoughts as to why this happened and how to fix it? Thanks!

    Drag, or Command-Drag the Applications folder off the sidebar and let go. It will disappear in a puff of smoke. Now click on Macintosh HD on the sidebar, locate the Applications folder that appears on the right and drag it to the sidebar.
