Assign screen to .desktop files

I got a Notebook with attached HDMI screen.
Although i assigned the HDMI-Monitor as primary screen autostart-applications always start on my Notebook-Monitor.
Is it possible to assign screens in .desktop files ?

Which DE/WM are you using?

I tried with XFCE and KDE Plasma.

In KDE, you can use Window Rules for that. You can assign certain windows to open on specific monitors.

They can be accessed in the context menu for the applications or in System Settings.
