    Hey guys,

    Don't know if a lot of people are having this problem. But Launchpad rearranges my apps randomly. There are times when i turn on Launchpad and i'm looking for a certain app, and it's at like another corner where i didn't even place it. Is anyone else having this same issue? Also, is there anyway to fix this?

    I have the same problem!!

    Man, I have exactly the same problem, but I have terminal command line that will reset launchpad to it's default settings, like reset home screen on iOS devices. Trust me, it works great.

    The command line: rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db
    After you enter that, enter "killall Dock" without the quotations, and then launchpad will be like brand new!!!

    P.S. It only resets it. If you want to remove all the apps from launchpad (to start from scratch), there is also another command line for that, but you'll have to search online for it, cuz I don't know it.
