    So this is my first Mac and I'm starting to get frustrated with the Launchpad. At one point I could rearrange everything in it just fine and it would remember their location. But now every time I rearrange anything once I reboot they return to their original location. Is there anyway to fix this?

    1. Open Terminal
    2. Type: cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/
    3. Type: rm *.db
    4. Type: killall Dock
    5. Quit Terminal

    This should fix and arrangement issues by re-creating the file where the Launchpad icon order is stored.
