launchpad icon in dock

Mac’s ¬†Launchpad has a bug where when you try to click an application icon, instead of opening the app, it moves as if you were dragging it, not clicking it, then remains on the Desktop when you close launchpad.

To remove the zombie icon,

  1. Start Terminal
  2. Execute command “killall Dock”
