For example when I run open -a Kodi I'd like to be able to specify which Desktop I'd want the application to launch in.

Trying to avoid dragging/dropping to the desired workspace.


You can permanently assign an app to a Space by right-clicking the app in the dock > Options > Assign to... This Desktop.

enter image description here

A faster way to move it to any given Space is to grab the window's title bar, then use your regular shortcut to switch to the desired Space. By default that would be Ctrl ⌃ [number]
See System Prefs > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Mission Control if you've never set that up. [Note that it differentiates between the numbers above qwerty & numbers on a 10-key pad & considers them different keys]

  • Options > Assign to... is no longer available.

  • Never mind. Will be out in 10.11 betas and thought that will be out now. I was wrong. As you say is still there.

  • I really hope they're not going to break Spaces any more than they already did when they added Mission Control :(
