Hmm, depending on how precisely you formulated the question there are several possible answers:

The Applications folder is missing from the Dock

Navigate to Computer in Finder (Shift-Command-C)
Open local hard drive (usually called "Macintosh HD" or computername)
Drag the Applications folder to the Dock (near the end where the other folders and the trash are located)
Right-click the folder in the Dock and select show as folder
The Applications folder/link is missing from the Favorites list in any Finder window

Step 1 and 2 as above
Drag the Applications folder to the Favorites list
You are actually missing the Launchpad icon from the Dock

Step 1 and 2 as above
Open the Applications folder
Locate Launchpad and drag it to the Dock (near the beginning this time)

Do you see the icon on the far left that looks like a face - that's your Finder (file manager).


(click on the picture for the full image)

When you open the Finder, you should see Applications in the left-hand column. Click on that and you should see all of your applications. Some of them may be in the Utilities folder within the Applications folder, so check there, too.

If you are looking for a specific application, and you know the name, click on the magnifying glass at the top right of your screen. Type in the name and you should see it listed. Click on it to open it.

The "spaceship" looking icon (Launchpad) brings up apps.

Also if you click on Macintosh HD there should be a link to "applications" on the lefthand side. To enable the "Macintosh HD" icon on your desktop:


In the Finder, choose Preferences from the Finder menu.
Click the General icon on the toolbar.
Select "Hard disks" in the "Show these items on the desktop:" section.
