I've had this issue for a while and have looked all over for a solution. Ever since I upgraded my iMac to High Sierra I've been having problems with multiple desktops. I have Desktop 1 set as my personal space, Desktop 2 as my business space, Desktop 3 as Lightroom, and Desktop 4 as Photoshop. I use to easily swipe between these workspaces with my mouse. Since updating to High Sierra no matter what desktop I swipe to it randomly automatically snaps back to the desktop I have Lightroom on. If I want to use Chrome in Desktop 1 or 2 I have to swipe to it, and quickly click the page so it doesn't snap back to Lightroom. I'm up to date on OS and Lightroom. HELP!!!

Looks like Dave came in with the win! That seems to have worked. On Sierra I had them pinned to the desktops with this method, and when I went to High Sierra I don't recall seeing that option when I started having the issues. Thanks!
