I am running in the KDE plasma environment, and I have 9 workspaces. I would like to somehow set up a way to lock the widgets so that if I switch from one workspace to another, they will still be there.

Is there any way to do this?

The setting you're looking for is in System Settings -> Workspace Behavior.

In the Workspace Behavior dialog, choose the Virtual Desktops icon on the left. In the "Layout" group, you should see a checkbox labeled, Different widgets for each desktop.

Toggling that will enable/disable having separate widgets for each desktop.
