As far as I know there is not but you can use the trackpad for quick access to launch . Swipe three fingers and your Thumb towards the middle of the trackpad. This may not work if you have not activated it. To activate it go to System Preferences and then click LaunchPad.

Yes, it is located in the Applications folder and it does open when I double click on it.

I did not change the key assignments for the F4 key, as I mentioned above, I just went and assigned it now and it worked after I assigned it.

I'm new to Mac and just wanted to use the default shortcuts whenever they exist, that's why I was asking.

Not sure the assignment is not on my MacBook, it may be the updated OS or it could be something I installed. Not sure.

Anyway, it works now and I guess by assigning the F4 key, I'm using the default option.
