    Hi, Does anyone know if there is a way to restore just one application from time machine backup or just select the applications that you want to restore?

    If not by time machine is there another application that can do that?

    Thank you.

    It really depends on the application. Some apps that are completely self contained can be restored easily like Satori described. But others like MS Office or Adobe apps come with installers that install support filled/folders as part of the install routine, and just restoring the application file itself with those is not going to work.

    That is awesome. Thank you very much. That's made my day.

    Just to confirm, I open the Time Machine App on my MacBook, and then do this "MacintoshHD>Applications>Choose The App and Restore or Right Click and Choose Restore To and Applications Folder"
