  1. Taskview virtual desktop switches back to original one when opening certain programs


    I want to multi task and use different desktops for my different programs but certain programs like Teams or Outlook will trigger the virtual desktop to switch back to the main first desktop.

    Is there a way to use taskviewer on windows 10 that will let me open Teams or other programs in different virtual desktops vs JUST the main one.

  2. Windwos 10 Virtual Desktop: TaskView mode immediately returns to desktop when pressing Win+Tab or TaskView icon

    I like Windows 10 Virtual Desktop function. But it also made me crazy as it's working strange.

    As the title suggested pressing Win+tab or TaskView icon once changes to TaskView mode.

    But it immediately returns to desktop without any activity. Then pressing it once more it

    stays there and I can do something on it. So to say to show TaskView mode I almost always

    required pressing Win+Tab or TaskView icon twice. I'm using several Windows 10 PCs

    and they are all showing same symptom.

    This is really annoying and I couldn't find any solution for it.

    Is there anybody suffered this kind of problem and fixed?

    Thanks,

    SY

    Programs open in wrong Virtual Desktop

    I have a written a program which enhances Windows 10 desktops and works around this issue for you by detecting the switch to a new desktop to open the existing document and then open of a new document - it then moves it back where it belongs.

    Virtual Desktop Grid Switcher

    Full set of features are:

    • Windows 10 Desktop Switcher using a grid layout
    • Switch desktops using arrow keys with configurable modifier keys
    • Move active window to another desktop using keyboard
    • Make windows Always on Top or Sticky using keyboard
    • Activate last active window when switch from empty desktop (Windows 10 bug)
    • Chrome/Firefox activation to make web links open on same desktop if window exists
    • Word/Excel new window detected and moved back to current desktop if auto-switched
    Enjoy!

    Cannot open additional virtual desktops

    OS Windows 10 - I cannot enable a new virtual desktop. After opening windows, when I click on taskview, the existing file is is seen as a preview (small size) along with any other files opened earlier. But there is no dialogue like ‘add new desktop’ either at right hand bottom corner or any other place. I am forced to open all files in the same (1st and only) desktop. Any suggestion as to how to be able to add more desktops will be welcome.
