  1. Opening Apps in Specific Virtual Desktops


    Hi, I was wondering if there's a way to set my apps to open in particular virtual desktops.

    Desired effect: When I run the following apps, I'd like for them to open only in their designated vitrual desktops. E.x. I'd like for my Spotify to open only in Virtual Desktop 5, and my browser to open only in Virtual Desktop 2

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    All the best.

    :)

    Opening Apps in Specific Virtual Desktops

    Open app in cmd in specific task view

    At startup, I already have 3 task views opened.
    So I want .bat file to start my apps and I want it to be opened on a specific task view.

    But if it is not possible on .bat, I'll look into powershell as suggested.
