View Full Version : Launchpad resets after every system restart

24th November 2014, 01:50 PM
I've recently purchased an Apple iMac with Retina 5K display and I've found an issue whereby the custom order of icons within Launchpad resets every time the system is restarted. I've tried multiple things to attempt to fix the issue, including running the following commands via Terminal:

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


sudo killall Dock

I also found a tip that suggested deleting the relevant .db file stored within the below directory...

Library > Application Support > Dock

...however, there is no .db file stored within that directory other than the desktoppicture.db file.

It may also be worth nothing that when the order of icons within Launchpad resets it resets unpredictably; particular icons will randomly move positions with each system restart.

If anyone can provide me with a solution to this problem I would really appreciate it.
