Cannot Ctrl Click & Open apps downloaded to OS X

June 19, 2012 by The Man

Ok if you have Allow Applications set to Mac App Store and trusted developers you can usually just ctrl click and press open to get round opening untrusted apps.

This didn’t work with the latest beta of Mountain Lion but there is a quick workaround. Simply set to Anywhere, open the app then set back to App Store and trusted developers.
