Thanks, I should be able to do this now. What I was expecting is a menu option to save my default desktop. I guess Gnome (hence Cinnamon too) took away this nice option. It used to be under "user preferences" somewhere to save your current layout for default. Too bad it was removed, FIPR strikes again (Fixed In Prior Release).
