  1. Is there any way to lock a window to a virtual desktop?


    I have 3 virtual desktops and find that my windows randomly move between the desktops. I'm trying to keep windows in a a personal desktop separate from windows in a citrix hosted work desktop, separate from windows in a projects desktop. I find that windows from one desktop end up on the desktop I'm working in at the time. I do not use or visit these windows, they just end up migrating to the desktop I'm using from one of the other desktops. Is there anyway to lock a window to a virtual desktop so it stays there and doesn't end up moving to other desktops?

    :)

    Lock application in virtual desktop

    Is it possible to lock certain applications or windows in virtual desktops? I use sticky notes a lot and would prefer for them to stay in virtual desktop 2? I know how to move them there however, every time I restart my computer they are back in desktop
    1. Can I 'lock" them into desktop 2?

    Lock application in virtual desktop

    Hi Taylor,

    With regard to your concern, there is no option to lock an application to the virtual desktop. However, you can try to pin the Sticky note on the virtual desktop's taskbar.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Is there any way to lock a window to a virtual desktop?

    Virtual desktops

    In the article you linked it says talks about 4 goals Microsoft has with virtual desktops:

    • Give you more desktop space to group related windows
    • Help you quickly locate and switch to any window or group of windows
    • Let you easily re-organize your groups and move windows as tasks evolve
    • Keep you in control of the degree of separation between your grouped windows
    Not being able to control what desktop the program opens on really doesn't fit in with these goals.

    Give me one good reason for why it is suppose force me to change virtual desktop when I open a program, just one good reason and I will consider to drop the issue. To me this sounds like virtual desktops isn't ready yet and you refuse to acknowledge that
    there are bugs, because this makes it very hard to work with multiply virtual desktops.
