I want to keep the mail applicaton fullscreen in the far right space.

Every time I open a fullscreen application it moves to the far right.

How do I lock a fullscreen app in say the far right space?

This feature has been asked for by users many times, but unfortunately, Apple hasn’t implemented it yet.

A very ugly workaround is:

  1. Add a new desktop in Mission Control.
  2. Switch the Mail app to windowed mode.
  3. Open Mission Control, and move the window to the newly created Desktop.
  4. Switch to the Mail app. Right click on the icon in the Dock. In options, select “Assign to this Desktop.”

This is a very ugly workaround and you can use Mail only in Window mode this way.
