Windows 10 Virtual Desktops
Did you know that you can quickly create a new virtual desktop by pressing Windows key + Ctrl + D? You can and virtual desktops can help you reduce annoying screen clutter without losing anything you’re working on – or viewing.
Virtual desktops are great for creating separate workspaces. Above you can see that I have three desktops… or workspaces. The one I’m working in is on the far left. I’ve created two virtual desktops
Above: Notice I can have different programs open on each desktop, most of which are independent of each other. Simply put – I could be working on a notepad file on Desktop one, an MS Word doc in window #2, and creating a graphic on desktop 3. Each virtual desktop is its own workspace – each is independent of the other. And I can switch between them simply by clicking this icon in the Taskbar.
Or you can move/switch between virtual desktops using these keyboard shortcuts:
Windows key + Ctrl + Left Arrow and Windows key + Ctrl + Right Arrow.
You can have an unlimited number of virtual desktops. Well not really – the number of virtual desktops is limited by the amount of RAM installed and your free hard drive space. Come to think of it, why would you need one hundred virtual desktops? I have enough trouble juggling three!
