    pin apps to specific virtual desktop?


    I haven't used Windows in years but have just gotten one of those tiny Intel NUC things and installed Windows 10 pro on it.

    I'm glad to see Windows finally has an OK virtual desktop system, but is there a way to pin specific software to a specific desktop? Let's say I wanted to pin, say, Chrome to desktop 2. Now whenever I start Chrome, it would open in desktop 2 instead of which ever desktop I have active at the time.

    I'm used to setting up my work environment so that I have quite many desktops and I know which one has which programs open and they never stray to other desktops unless I specifically want to move them around myself.

    Tried googling and seems that it's not possible without using some 3rd party apps but wanted to check. And if I need a 3rd party app, any suggestions for lightweight ones that won't bring any unnecessary problems?
