    Restoring Tasks in Multiple Desktop views


    I am using several Desktop views when working on several programs and activities. For example, may have a desktop open with MATLAB applications, another with Arduino apps, and so on. When I power down, all of the current work files and sessions are lost.

    How can I restore previous task windows, including files and apps, automatically or with a single action, without reverting to opening them individually via the history feature in task view?

    Alternatively, is there a tool that allows me to open several virtual windows so that, when I power up I can restore them to the previous session states?

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.

    • What happens when you open task view from task bar?
    • Are you able to switch between all of your open apps on multiple desktops?

    Are you trying to disable task view feature in Windows 10? If yes, please try these steps.

    a. Right-click on task bar.

    b. Uncheck show task view button.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.
