I assume you are running the IceWM desktop. In the menu, follow the path Applications -> System Tools -> IceWMcc to bring up the IceWM Control Centre. That lets you set the number of workspaces to 1, for example.

Desktop workspaces, or desktop environments? If you have multiple DEs installed, you can uninstall any of them via tasksel, just as you can install more the same way.

Assuming you want to keep the default IceWM/Rox-filer set up:

sudo apt purge desktop-defaults-fluxbox-antix desktop-defaults-jwm-antix desktop-defaults-spacefm-antix desktop-defaults-hlwm-antix spacefm spacefm-common fluxbox jwm herbstluftwm
