How do I open the Brother ControlCenter2 in Macintosh?


Description of Solution 200000018852

 

The ControlCenter2 is a software utility that allows you to quickly and easily access your often used applications.  Using the ControlCenter2 eliminates the need to manually launch specific applications for use with your Brother machine. 

 

There may be two different versions of the ControlCenter2 software available depending on your model and operating system.  If you are not sure which version you have, try the steps for each version in turn.

 

If you do not have either version, then the scanner driver and ControlCenter software is not installed properly.  For scanner installation instructions refer to: How do I download and install the printer or scanner driver for Macintosh OS X?

1. To open the ControlCenter2 application, browse to Applications => Brother => ControlCenter.

 

The ControlCenter will open and an icon will be placed in the Dock.

 

 

NOTE: If you do not see the ControlCenter software, then you may be using the previous version of ControlCenter.  For instructions on how to use this version, refer to: Previous Version.

 

2. If you would like to keep the ControlCenter in the Dock for easier future access, complete the following steps:

 

     a.  Make sure that the ControlCenter is still open.

 

     b.  Hold down the CTRL key on the keyboard and click on the ControlCenter icon in the Dock.

 

     c.  Choose Options => Keep in Dock.  A checkmark will be placed next to the option to signify that the application's icon will remain in the Dock when closed.  You can launch the ControlCenter from this icon in the future.

NOTE: If you do not see the ControlCenter software, then you may be using the current version of ControlCenter.  For instructions on how to use this version, refer to: Current Version.
