No, it is hard coded

need arose as need menu:

Launch and put it in another workspace

Assuming you want to launch mousepad and move it to the second workspace, change the launcher command to run:

sh -c "mousepad & sleep 1 && wmctrl -r Mousepad -t 1"

Some notes:
- if app takes long time to start up and display, increase the sleep value
- make sure the app name is recognized by wmctrl (run "wmctrl" with the app running to see how its identified)
- the workspaces are numbered starting at 0 - so therefore "-t 1" refers to the second workspace.

I'm sorry I don't understand.

Did you try with Mousepad?
Did you increase the sleep amount?
Can you copy/paste the launcher's command string back here?

Re: Can context-menu on a panel bar icon have user defined menu?

@almahdi, you are all over the place and you don't answer questions that are asked of you. This makes it difficult to offer assistance.

If Xfce is jumping to another workspace, it is probably because you have something in your saved sessions or application autostart that is auto-starting, and also Settings Manager  > Window Manager Tweaks > Focus > Switch to Window's Workspace enabled.

We need to focus on one thing at a time.  Can you answer my questions from post #2 and repeated in post #4?

SOLVED

1. find the title name/string
$  {executable/app filename} & { sleep 3; wmctrl -l ;}

2. CLI to move
$ {executable/app filename}  & { sleep 3; wmctrl -r {that title name/string} -t 1 ;}

"that title name" could be the executable file name or the window title which it has put
