I prefer to organize my launchpad with the default apps on the first page and anything else installed past the second page in alphabetical order. I used to use a terminal command that would do just this.

Code:
defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock

However, in Catalina (and possibly some earlier versions) it no longer puts the apps in alpha order, instead it sorts them randomly. Is there any way to get them in alpha order again?

Have you checked under system preferences? Look under mission control, then make sure the check mark is gone from automatically rearrange spaces based on most recent use. Move your icons after that to how you like.

Nope, didn't work. This doesn't even have anything to do with the launchpad.
