Right now I have Chrome set up in Desktop 1, Terminal in Desktop 2, and Spotify in Desktop 3. If I command+tab to Spotify, it changes the order of the desktops, so now Desktop 3 is Desktop 2 and Desktop 2 is Desktop 3. This is frustrating because I expected them to stay put. What I would like to have happen when I command+tab to Spotify is have it go to Desktop 3 and not reorder the Desktops.

You can change the default preference easily:

System Prefs > Mission Control > Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use.
