Opening file on current Windows 10 Virtual Desktop

Hi. Using Windows 10 virtual desktop (on local device, not in the Azure cloud) https://community.windows.com/en-us/stories/virtual-desktop-windows-10 When having multiple Windows 10 virtual desktops and some Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) file open in say Desktop 1, when switching to Desktop 2 and opening a file of the same application, the display is forcibly and without warning switched to the virtual desktop where the application was already open. So if I switch to virtual desktop 3, open a Word document, then manually switch to virtual desktop 5 and open another Word document, I get 'pulled back' to virtual desktop 3 without notice where the new file window is displayed, but it should have been placed in virtual desktop 5. This causes mindset disruption as each desktop contains data related to separate projects. Also there is a risk when having an audience watching the screen, they might see private information due to virtual desktop being switched. One can still move the newly opened window over to the desired virtual desktop, but it would be expected that the window was placed within the virtual desktop it was opened from.
