1.1 The usual way to start LispWorks

On Microsoft Windows and macOS the simplest way to run LispWorks is that provided in the desktop environment. On Windows you can run LispWorks from the desktop Start menu, or the Start screen on Windows 8. On macOS you can run LispWorks by clicking on the "LW" icon in the Dock or from the Launchpad. On both these platforms you can create a shortcut to LispWorks and place it somewhere that is convenient for you, such as the Windows 8 taskbar.

On non-Windows and non-macOS systems you start LispWorks by entering the name of the LispWorks executable at a shell prompt.

If you have installed any LispWorks patches, then they will be loaded automatically when you start LispWorks.
