Refresh Launchpad contents in MacOS

The fastest way to get there is by using Command+Shift+G in the Finder to access the “Go To Folder” function, then just paste

~/Library/Application Support/Dock/

 You will see a folder like this:

OS X Lion's Launchpad database files

 

 

 

 

 

If you want to back these up you can, otherwise just delete them by dragging the .db files to the Trash, and then kill the Dock again from the Terminal to force the databases to regenerate.

killall Dock (In Terminal)
