    virtual desktop as multiple monitor

    Hello Dan,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Virtual desktops lets you create multiple, separate desktops that each can display different open windows and apps. Multiple desktops are great for quickly switching desktops. The idea of having multiple virtual desktops is being able to order programs
    according to a set of tasks.

    PC can’t have different virtual desktop on each monitor. However, we can
    configure the taskbar for multiple displays to send windows from one monitor to another. We can customize Windows to have a taskbar shown on only one display, and a different taskbar on the other display. To do that, follow the below mentioned
    steps.

    • Right click on the taskbar and select
      Taskbar Settings
      .
    • Scroll down to Multiple displays section and choose
      Taskbar where window is open under Show taskbar buttons on option.

    By choosing that particular option in Settings, you can set its independent taskbar in addition to your primary display. Only the open windows are shown on the taskbar in that particular display.

    As a workaround, we can create a new profile to switch your main display to another. By doing that, you can switch between profiles which will be having different displays in it.
    To do that, follow the below mentioned steps.

    • Right click anywhere on the desktop and select Graphics properties > Select
      Display > make changes to change your main displays > click on
      Save profile
      > assign a name to it.
    • You can create multiple profiles to make different monitors as main displays each time.
    • To apply the profile, right click anywhere on the
      desktop and select Graphics Options > Profiles > in there you can select the new account which you have created to switch the display.

    Hope it helps.

    Explorer would crash on desktop with multiple monitors and different scaling

    Multiple Desktops on Multiple Monitors

    Hi everyone,

    I have multiple (virtual) desktops and I am extending my screen to an external monitor. However, when I change my desktop to a different one, it also changes the desktop on my second monitor. How can I keep my second (extended) monitor to a fixed desktop
    and change desktops on my primary monitor?

    Thanks,

    Junaid
