  1. Task View/Virtual Desktops.


    Hi everyone. I've been using the Task View feature a lot on my PC, and I was wondering if I could make the two desktops different from each other? For example. Having a desktop or 2 for school/work, and one for Gaming. With different shortcuts on the desktop. Different desktop wallpaper.

    :)

    Can't enter Task View from virtual "Desktop 1" on Windows 10

    I have been enjoying Task View and multiple virtual desktops for some time now, but suddenly Task View has stopped working properly on my Desktop 1 virtual desktop. Neither the Taskbar button nor the keyboard shortcut (Win + Tab) work for activating Task
    View. However, I can Win + Arrow Key to switch to other virtual desktops. From any of the other virtual desktops, everything works normally. Furthermore, once I enter Task View from another virtual desktop, I can Win + Arrow Key to switch back to Desktop 1
    while remaining in Task View, which then shows open application windows from Desktop 1. However, once I exit Task View, the problem resumes and I can't re-enter Task View without again first switching to another virtual desktop. After I enter Task View from
    another virtual desktop, I can "delete" virtual Desktop 1 by clicking the "x," but then the next desktop in the list (i.e. 2) becomes the new "Desktop 1" and acquires the same problem as before where I can't enter Task View from Desktop 1.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    edit: Alt + Tab works normally on all virtual desktops.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing difficulty in assigning the applications to a specific virtual desktop. Let me help you in clearing your doubts.

    The virtual desktops feature in Windows 10 is called “Task View” and is located on the Taskbar.
