I recently installed QGIS 3.2.2-Bonn on my 2014 Macbook pro running OSX 10.13.6 (17G65), however, I am unable to open the standalone browser tool that looks like this:

QGIS Browser

I am unable to open the browser tool because I cannot locate the standalone application. According to this website: QGIS Browser Tutorial

I should be able to locate the application in the following directory:

QGIS.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/QGIS Browser.app

but when I go to that path, there is no QGIS Browser.app file. All I see is this: Missing File

I downloaded and installed QGIS via the standard installer from the QGIS website: Download QGIS

I'm just trying to open QGIS browser and instead where I expect the application to be located, it is not. Any ideas on this?


QGIS3 doesn't seem to have a standalone browser application - instead, use the browser panel:

View | Panels | Browser
