Depends on how you want to accomplish that task.

If you want it to start there automagically on boot, it can be done. I just don't remember how.

If you want to put it there while working, click on the stick pin in the upper left hand corner of the app window (make it sticky so that it follows you when you change desktop). Change to the desktop you want it in, then click on the stick pin again, to un-sticky it.

It'll stay there when you switch to another desktop.

No I want to be able to launch any app - and have it go to a particular desktop every time (no user intervention required).

Any ideas?
