10.7: Assign an application to a Space
Authored by: TheTSArt on Aug 01, '11 08:54:39PM

I don't understand the usefulness of this feature. There are times I find myself with 4 or 5 desktops, usually because I took Safari or something out of full screen mode. However, when I restart they are all gone and I'm back to just one. Plus every time I go into Mission Control things are rearranged since last I saw them. Desktops in Lion just seem more temporary than they were in Snow Leopard's Spaces.

I just tried this hint and if you delete the space or restart, it doesn't re-create the replacement desktop for it. I would think an option to create a new desktop when an application launches might be more useful.

To stop spaces rearranging themselves, head over to System Preferences > Mission Control and uncheck the checkbox next to "Automatically rearrange spaces based on most recent use" . I'm pretty sure this is checked by default and if unchecked should stop the spaces rearranging themselves!
