    If you use Spaces, you always start on Space #1 on startup. And any unassigned application will be opened here unless you navigate to another Space manually. I want to change starting Space.

    Google suggests this:

    This solution has potential bugs and I want to keep Finder shown on all spaces.

    I thought of writing a script which would set screen to the needed Space using keyboard shortcuts. But maybe there's a better solution?

    I believe that if you assign one, and only one application to another Space, and then set up Startup Items so that this application is automatically opened, the Space you assigned it to will be the initial active space. Of course, you can play with it and have more than one Startup Item, but I'm not sure what takes precedence over what.
