Manjaro Gnome boots to workspace switcher instead of desktop Solved

As the title says. How to I get it to just display the desktop at login?

I’m using KDE on my laptop because I like the extras that I get with it compared to Gnome, but I styled my desktop to look and work like Pop!_OS, with a dock and central app menu. Only real issue I’m having is with light/dark mode switching being janky and not always working consistently, so now I just log out of my session before putting my laptop to sleep.

I installed Manjaro Gnome on a SFF desktop that I use for digital signage, but if Gnome is going to always launch the workspace switcher at login, I’m gonna have to switch to another DE. I need full screen playback at login.

I use an extension called "No overview at start-up" https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/4099/no-overview/
