    Can I have Different Folders On Different Desktops???


    Don't want to bork up my computer so I am asking here first:

    Can I have different folders and files on different desktops in windows 10?

    I want to have one desktop that has work-related folders and files that I can access easily, and one desktop that has personal folders and files I can access quickly.

    Right now, I see the same folders and files on both desktops *Sad

    Maybe there is a better way to do this... I guess I could just create two NEW folders (one called work, one called home) and just put all the folders and files on my desktop into those two folders, but that might require me to be organized, which is apparently not one of my strong suits.

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Different desktop for different users

    I just bought a new computer with windows 10. How do a set up different desktops views for the different users in my households. These views should have their own folders and applications. Thanks

    Different desktop for different users

    Hi Michael

    Different Desktops as well as all of the other personal folders has always been the default setup in Windows.

    These are automatically set up when a new User Account is created.

    Create a local user account in Windows 10:
