Fixing Launchpad for Good
I previously shared how to clean out the junk from Launchpad that is auto populated in one swoop – back to nothing. In the following months though, clutter has again entered the space and rapidly diminishing the utility of Launchpad. MacWorld published this little preference add-in that does a great job. It is called Launch Pad Control ( http://chaosspace.de/launchpad-control/ ). Not real sexy but does the trick for sure. You simply uncheck the garbage that you do not need to see and hit apply. Done.
Likely a good idea to scrub the entire db clean with the details from my previous post. Then keep sanity with Launch Pad Control.
