    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.
