Stop Spaces from Rearranging Themselves in Mac OS X
The Mac OS X 10.7.2 update brought with it an unusual change to Mission Control’s behavior, where desktops/spaces will automatically rearrange themselves based on how recently they’ve been used or accessed. If you’ve set your spaces to be in a specific order, this is fairly annoying, but it’s also easy to stop.
- Launch “System Preferences” and click on Mission Control
- Uncheck the box next to “Automatically rearrange spaces based on most recent use”
- Close out System Preferences
With the automatic rearrangement disabled, Mission Control will again remember your app and desktops placement and not reorder them on it’s own.
