Can shortcuts be placed on specific desktops

Hi I am a new Linux convert. What I need to know is can I place application shortcuts on specific desktops? ie use the four default ones in KDE and sort my application that I use regularly. Until now if I create a shortcut it appears on all 4 desktops?

Hope this makes sense.

Any help will be appreciated.
