A few suggestions:
1. Middle-click on your desktop. You'll get a workspace listing,
though I'm not sure what that would look like with 24 workspaces. O_o
2. Right-click on a window titlebar or Alt+right-click anywhere on the
window to get the window menu. You can move it to a specific
workspace that way.
3. Use devilspie or wmctrl to automate workspace placement when
applications are opened.
4. Golly, deal with 10! I can't imagine needing 24! (OK, this one's
just a friendly poke.)
