    Multitasking/Virtual Desktops on Dual Monitors

    Hi,

    Great question.

    Virtual desktop can only work on your one monitor, the another monitor is just extension of your first monitor. Another option is to use

    Hyper-V
    on other monitor.

    Regarding on your idea you can raise it through the Windows Feedback App. You can post your suggestions or ideas that can help us improve the service that we provide.

    How to find Windows Feedback app:

    • Press Windows key+ Q, and type Feedback.
    • Select Windows Feedback and sign in using your Microsoft Account.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards.
