I use spaces to separate work modes. Lately, when I switch to a different space, Chrome shows up there too when it should just stay at its respective space. When I launch mission control, I am unable to drag and drop Chrome window on the space I want. Chrome simply pops up at every space, which is very very annoying, it's breaking my mode separations.

Any solutions or suggestions?

I am on Macbook Pro with OS X Lion v10.7.2 and Chrome v15.0.874.121

  • Have you checked Spaces preferences whether Chrome is visible on every space? – Daniel Beck Nov 28 '11 at 14:37
  • In Lion, there is only the Mission Control preferences, which has very limited options (nothing app specific). Other than that, I am not aware of Spaces preferences, where are they? – Engin Erdogan Nov 28 '11 at 14:55
  • Not on a Mac right now, but have you checked Chrome's Dock icon context menu? – Daniel Beck Nov 28 '11 at 15:34
  • You were right, thanks Daniel! In the context menu, you can assign it to a specific desktop vs all. That resolved it, thanks! Do you want to write that as an answer, so I can mark this closed? – Engin Erdogan Nov 28 '11 at 15:43

You can assign a space in the Dock item's context menu. Make sure you haven't selected to have Chrome appear on all spaces.
