How to start Local by Flywheel on a mac?

A beginner question…

Last week I installed Local by Flywheel on my mac and it works great. Today I had to reboot my machine and therefore shutdown the two WordPress servers I had running and then shutdown Local by Flywheel itself. Now I need to start it back up.

But I am surprised to find there is no application called Local by Flywheel or Flywheel. I do notice there is a new application called VirtualBox. When I run that it seems to know about Local by Flywheel but I could not make heads or tails of how to start Local by Flywheel up.

Can someone please give a pointer? Thanks.

Ok, found it. Somehow the Local by Flywheel app got placed or stayed in the download folder instead of the application folder. I’ve just moved it there.

VirtualBox would have been installed as part of Local’s install process, as Local needs VB to run. So make sure you don’t remove that from your system :wink:
