    How to Rename Virtual Desktops in Windows 10


    Task View is a virtual desktop manager in Windows 10 that allows you quickly switch between all of your open apps on multiple virtual desktops. Create custom additional desktops to group apps for productivity, entertainment, or whatever you choose. This makes multitasking and organizing your opened apps much easier.

    Virtual Desktops exist to help you visually and cognitively separate different tasks on your PC. They can also be handy when doing presentations enabling you to prepare demos on different desktops.

    Starting with Windows 10 build 18963, you can now rename your different virtual desktops to help cement the separation between workspaces.

    *note Currently this change is live for 50% of Insiders in the Fast ring, and Microsoft will be expanding the rollout over the next few weeks as they evaluate the quality of experience.

    This tutorial will show you how to rename virtual desktops for your account in Windows 10.



    Here's How:

    1. Open Task View (Win+Tab).

    2. Do step 3 or step 4 below for how you would like to rename a virtual desktop. (see gif below)

    3. Click/tap on the name of a virtual desktop, and rename the desktop to what you want.

    OR

    4. Right click or press and hold on the thumbnail of a virtual desktop, click/tap on Rename in the context menu, and rename the desktop to what you want.

    Renaming virtual desktops in Windows 10

    I can't seem to find a way to rename virtual desktops in Windows 10. It would be helpful to have meaningful names instead of Desktop1, Desktop2..etc.

    Rename virtual desktop

    Thank you for your reply.

    Do you know any workaround?

    Funny thing, I was using virtual-desktop-enhancer in the previous windows version to rename desktops and everything was working very well. Now with this new update, it doesn't work anymore and the tool development seems to have stopped.

    The plus now is that I can paste using keyboard shortcut in wsl.
     
  6. 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.
