There are no different desktops/workspaces, there is only one.
Applying one or more tags to a window, and selecting one or more tags
for viewing influences what is displayed on that _single_ workspace
(to which the currently selected layout always applies).
I suggest you search the archives, the differences between tags and
workspaces have been discussed many, many times before (basically, as
long as you never select more than one tag for viewing, tags can be
(ab)used as workspaces, but when you select multiple tags for viewing
it becomes obvious that things like 'layout per workspace' have no
meaning in the tagging paradigm).
Also, should you come to the conclusion that the workspaces paradigm
fits you better than the tags paradigm, xmonad ( might be
worth looking at.

Greetings, Sander.
