    Is it possible to create multiple and independent desktops?
    I clicked on Task View and was able to create several desktops, all exact images of my main desktop.
    However, when I deleted some unneeded Icons from Desktop 2, I discovered that the selected icons
    were also deleted from the main Desktop.
    I have a lot of stuff on my Desktop. It would be great if I could have as many as six different and independent desktops to facilitate my computer work.
    Thank you.
    PS I realize this question may have already be asked but I couldn't find it.
    Bobby

    Multiple Desktops on Multiple Monitors

    Thanks for responding. In the past when I got a new version of Windows, the first thing I would do is go through all the control panel items, look into every dialog, More>> button, "Advanced..." button an so on looking for new and different features that
    will enable me to do more. Having done it once for the new OS, I don't need to go looking again, because I've checked everything. Now, it's like we're supposed to check everything every time there's an update because there's not even a (complete) list of changes
    to check.
