Issue about starting on Workspace 3 instead of 1

I need some guidance as to why my system is starting on workspace 3. It's rather annoying and would much rather start on the first workspace.
I've check all my startup applications, and none of them steal the focus, and I can't seem to find any options to change the default workspace. I don't even know if that's that issue.
I'm very confused.

What is the garuda-inxi output?

To be clear, I"m not asking for someone to solve this for me. I asking for guidance on where to start poking around. Its not an issue that needs imminent attention, its just an annoying problem I've been dealing with.

I found these two potential solutions, and had a thought about looking at your virtual desktop list in the settings. You've probably already tried the latter.

Do you have "restore session" enabled in KDE System Settings?

Okay so I worked with wmctrl before, and have it installed and working. How ever I can't seem to get a script to execute with it on startup.
I made a example.sh file, then put in:
sleep 5 && wmctrl -s 0
Linked the file in the autostart application, but nothing happen on a reboot.a

And no i don't have restore session enable. It doesn't solve the issue, and it likes to open mutable instances of applications. Which in itself becomes annoying.

Is this checked?

No it was not, and it did not fix the problem either sadly.
