Reset Your Launchpad on Yosemite

Terminal? No.

Sorty? Yes.


Sorty can easily reset your Launchpad items to default and remove duplicate entries in the ‘Open With’ menu.

This application has an easy to use and intuitive interface, with only two buttons: reset launchpad and remove duplicates in the ‘Open With’ menu.


You know, I just don’t think this app is getting enough recognition.

I see so many Launchpads that are disorganized and cluttered.

Thank goodness this dude did something about it!

There are Launchpads that look like this:

If only it could go back to its default settings and look pretty again, like the Launchpad below… 😉

Hah – hey pal, don’t even worry ‘bout it!

Just download Sorty!
