    Hi

    In my launchpad on my MacBook with OS X Lion, the apps in launchpad will not stay in the sorting I have made. When I restart my computer, the apps are placed the old way.

    I'm pretty new in Mac-world, so any help would be nice :)

    Regards Dennis

    searching this forum is a good place to start, there are threads about this..;)

    check out launchpad-control (try macupdate.com), but i'd suggest reading some threads here first about launchpad, and it's quirky behavior...

    It's a bug that Apple has never bothered to fix. Launchpad-Control does not fix it. Whenever it starts messing up, a complete rebuild of the arrangement database is necessary.

    Believe it or not, as of 10.8, the OS X version in development, still hasn't got this fixed.

    if my launchpad icons get messed up (and they do sometimes), i reload the database of my launchpad-control backup, and am back in business.

    apple needs to offer some options, control, over launchpad. 10.9? sigh...
