  1. Multiple Desktops using Edge Windows 10


    (1) I open a Web Page

    (2) I go to Task View and see that Web Page in a mini desktop (desktop 1)

    (3) Then I go back into my Browser (Edge) and minimise that page

    (4) Then I open a different Web Page and go back into Task View, only to find that this new Web Page has replaced the first one.

    When I wanted them both open in Separate mini desktops.

    Could someone explain in simple terms what I am doing wrong.

    It must be something to do with the Tabs but as a newbie to Windows 10 I don't know where to look or what to click.

    :)

    Using multiple desktops

    So when I go from left to right, I can do it usually by clicking the little arrow thing towards the bottom r/h side of the keyboard. The one thats not pointing down, up or left should do the trick, but if not maybe try the other three arrow thingys. or
    NumLock plus all 10 numbers at once. Failing that, there's a reset button behind the camera of most laptops, just pop it out, hit the button and you should be good to go!

    Launching an application on multiple desktops

    With Windows 10 virtual desktops, is there a way to launch Edge across multiple desktops? Currently, whenever one attemps to launch a new instance of Edge, the desktop automatically switches back to the one where the first instance of Edge was launched.
    It's obviously not impossible to run two instances at once since you can detach an Edge tab and then drag it over to another desktop, but that's kinda cumbersome.

    Seems to me having two instances of Edge on two separate desktops is not such a crazy concept.

    Multiple Desktops using Edge Windows 10

    You're not doing anything wrong, really, you just have to do it differently. Here's an easy way:

    Firstly, if you are going to use Virtual Desktops a lot, open a few at every Start Up by holding Ctrl + *Start and pressing D for as many as you wish.

    Then, open all your Favorites in tabs, then grab and drag the individual tabs right off of the tab bar and drop them anywhere, they will open in new windows.

    Then click on the 'Taskview' button and drag and drop the individual windows onto individual Desktops:

    To quickly navigate from Desktop to Desktop, hold Ctrl + *Start and press left or right arrows, (the ones in between the alpha keypad and the numeric keypad)

    FYI:
    Ctrl + *Start + D = add a desktop,
    Ctrl + *Start + F4 = deletes a desktop (beginning with the last one opened, any open windows there will be moved to an open Desktop),
    Ctrl + *Start + Left or Right Arrows = navigate between Desktops
