Answer:
Answer:

The Network Utility is in /System/Library/CoreServices/Applications. You can open a Go To Folder dialog (shift+command+G), enter the preceding path into it, and press Go.


Personally, I leave the application where it was intended to be installed in the operating system. I simply drag/dropped the application onto my Dock, where it appears as an alias to the original, which will continue to receive future updates.


Moving the application from its original intended location means that the version in /Applications will not get future updates, and a newer Network Utility may reappear in the original location, unless its absence alarms the installation process.

Network Utility was removed from Applications/ Utilities some time ago. It now resides in the path

Macintosh HD/System/Library/Core Services/Applications. You can simply drag it from there to your Applications folder or place it back in the Utilities folder where it used to be many years ago.

In macOS Mavericks and later, Network Utility is in a hidden Applications folder you cannot normally access.

With the Application opened, you can command + click on the App on the Dock, and click on "Show In Finder"


It will open the hidden folder, you can then drag the App from there onto the Applications Folder normally to create a "shortcut" to it there.


Late to the party.

You can open network utility through spotlight .

Don't try to change the default location . ( click on finder > applications > utilities ) in previous versions it was located under utilities .
