  2. Can't create a virtual desktop

    When I first got my new Surface Pro 6, I was able to create virtual desktops, but now they're gone and I can't find any way to create them again. When I click on the Task View key, all I see is the time line, without the "Create Virtual Desktop" link. Pressing
    Window + Ctrl + D does nothing.

    Have they somehow been disabled? I can't find any setting that governs whether I can make new virtual desktops or not, and every tutorial assumes the "create" button is still there.

    Please help.

  3. Virtual Desktops Windows 10?

    Hi Lucas,

    Modifying the settings of a virtual desktop requires complex steps. Because of this, we might need to refer you to our Microsoft TechNet forums for further assistance. For us to direct you to the correct forum category, we would need the answers to the following:

    • Are you using a Windows Server?
    • Is your device connected to a domain network?
    • What virtual desktop are you using?

    If you are using Hyper-V, you can use this article published
    by Andre Da Costa as your reference on how to use Windows 10's built in Hyper-V for creating Virtual Machines.

    We are looking forward to your response.
