How To Create And Set Up Multiple Virtual Desktop Screens On Windows 10
Among the myriad of features Windows 10 comes equipped with is the ability to set up and use multiple virtual desktop to keep tasks separate without over cluttering a single screen and keeping ongoing projects organized and away from unrelated tasks that can’t be fully abandoned just yet.
Despite Microsoft’s abysmal forced upgrade attempts, there are a huge number of people who willingly jumped to their latest OS, Windows 10. Not only it is the best operating system from Microsoft in ages, it is so wildly popular that even diehard Windows 7 fans who refused to switch to the Windows 8 and then the later much improved 8.1 have now shifted to Windows 10.
To set up the new virtual desktop within Windows 10, users just have to press the Task View button on the taskbar. By default, it should sit right next to the search bar/Cortana. Those who can’t find it can also press the Windows Key and Tab key together. Then all they have to do is press the New Desktop button located in the bottom right of the desktop overview screen.
Alternatively, users can also simply press the Ctrl key + Windows key + D together to automatically create a new desktop.
To switch between multiple created desktops, the Task view button is once again used to open up the Desktop overview screen. At the bottom of the screen there will be the icons of all the current desktop screens created. Ctrl + Windows key + Left/Right arrow can also be used to switch between screens.
In order to avoid the hassle of opening the same windows in another desktop screen, users can simply go to the Task View screen of their current Desktop where the window they want to move is located. The window can then be moved by clicking on it and holding down the mouse button and simply dragging it to their required Desktop screen.
Removing virtual desktops is also as easy as opening the Task View, hovering over the Desktop they want to remove and clicking on the close button at the top right corner of the Desktop icon.
