No SNAP icon after install on Mac (Sierra, 10.12.6)

I’ve installed SNAP and am not seeing an application icon to launch SNAP.

I’ve installed SNAP (version 6) via the official download site: This creates a folder in my Applications folder called SNAP, with children folders and files. For example: bin, etc, ide, LICENSE.txt, platform… and so on.

However, I do not see an icon to launch the SNAP gui. Should I be?

I’ve tried installing “Sentinel Toolboxes” option, as well as the “All Toolboxes” option (clicking the option to remove all prior installs of SNAP each time) with the same results.

I also checked my Java version in Terminal app:

$ java -version
java version “10” 2018-03-20
Java™ SE Runtime Environment 18.3 (build 10+46)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM 18.3 (build 10+46, mixed mode)

I believe what you’re looking for is in the bin folder.


@Ciaran_Evans Thanks for this pointer. This worked.
