If you use Spaces or Virtual Desktops in macOS then you'll notice that their arrangements often times change. This is because macOS by default sets to automatically rearrange the desktops by recent use. While this could be useful to some, it could get frustrating if it disrupts your workflow.

You can prevent macOS desktops from changing orders by setting it up from Mission Control's preferences.

Steps to prevent Spaces from rearranging in macOS:

  1. Open System Settings from the Apple menu.
  2. Click on Desktop & Dock from the sidebar menu.
  3. Scroll down to the Mission Control section.
  4. Click on the Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use toggle switch to disable.
