    How does one re-arrange the order of Mission Control Spaces & Full-Screen Applications? Can it be done?

    As a matter of fact, you can not do that for the moment. I have tried to look for the solution but haven't found one. If someone know about this, please share.

    Apple thought it's stupid to let people arrange their workflow the way they want, and that it's better for people to have their spaces in a predefined, random order. You can't rearrange them.

    Rearange Full-Screen apps

    at least you can kind of rearrange fullscreenapps, some kind of LIFO, demaximize all apps and then remaximize them in reverse order you want to have them appear from left to right.

    I just noticed that you can drag an app in mission control up into the top row to the right and it names it desktop 2, 3, etc. a + desktop appears on the right when you mouse over the top row. I find the only way to remove them from this spot is to add a desktop and then an X will appear for that one as well as the rest until you have just the dashboard and desktop.

    certainly could use some improvements.

    i CANNOT WAIT until we can (fingers crossed) move the screens in Mission Control where we want them, and PIN THEM.

    right now, no matter how hard i try :D they act up, move around. ugh.

    Yes, but then it shifts your full screen apps to the last available position, requiring you to scroll through all your Desktops to reach your full screen apps. Frustrating.

    Apple will certainly add more functionality for Mission Control in future updates. I think we are all in agreement that rearranging the desktop order is a must.
