    Hey all Unable to Reorder Virtual Desktops in the release version of 21H2 :)

    The ability to reorder the Virtual Desktops on W10 was finally there since some insider builds earlier this year (as you can see here: https://winaero.com/how-to-reorder-virtual-desktops-in-windows-10/) and such feature was supposed to be present on 21H2 (from my understanding).

    However, as of the 21H2 update, nothing has changed and still the only thing I can do in my machines is rename the VDs...

    Did this feature not make it to the release of 21H2?

    Cheers! Unable to Reorder Virtual Desktops in the release version of 21H2 ;)

  2. Cannot reorder "Desktop" in Quick Access

    I have a brand new PC with Windows 10 pro (17763).

    I can pin Desktop to Quick Access but I cannot drag and drop it to reorder it.

    I can drag and drop every other items in the list one by one (Documents, Downloads and some folders) to move Desktop all the way to the top.

    After a while, Desktop would move all the way to the bottom, by itself.

    Anyone experienced the same thing?

    Wish-list of windows. Reorder the desktops. And others "desktop features"

    Hi everyone.

    Do you know if a public wish-list of Windows exist? And if do, where I can vote in features that I desire to my next desktop OS? A place to vote in the desired features posted by the others and this kind of stuff.

    Many times, I miss something on my "windows experiment". First of all, I'm not a unix-maniac. However I'm a linux user for a decade, and recently a MacOS user at my work. But when they release the new windows 10, I decide to give it a try. And since then,
    I'm using windows 10 at my desktop PC at home and at my cellphone. And it have been an amazing experience.

    But sometimes I miss one thing or other that could be a nice and easy feature to aggregate. Do you have it or are you in process to create?

    Reorder Desktops

    One very simple feature that should already exist on this release of windows 10 is the reorder of desktops.

    Use multiple desktops is a GREAT new feature of windows 10. It was one of the most things that I miss on the windows OS's. And finally, we have it.

    But sometimes I change my "modus operandi" and want to reorder my desktops, to have a quick access to what I need to do my work, without need to change all my applications opened in one desktop to another.

    by the way....

    Quick desktop change

    I use the keyboard a lot. So, this keyboard shortcut to change between desktops is very useful. However... I really like the way that you can change between desktops using your mouse on MacOS.

    Microsoft started to create hardware by themselves. In fact, I have a Microsoft Bluetooth mouse here to my "Microsoft experiment". And there is no shortcut to change desktops by a gesture control.

    Ok.. ok... using the touchpad from my desktop, I can use 3 fingers to open the "task view", but I'm talking about something to directly change the desktop. To be quickly. Something like swipe tree fingers horizontally will be great.

    Talking about shortcuts...

    Change between desktop and take you app with it

    One thing that I really miss from my Ubuntu is the capability to change between desktop and take my apps with me.

    Since I can't reorder my desktops, the most easy way to change my "modus operandi" is using what I can get from the shortcuts. At Ubuntu Unity, I also can't reorder my desktop. However, I have a nice shortcut to change between
    desktops and move my apps with me. To easily change my apps from one desktop to another.

    At windows 10, I can do is only if I use one command to open the "task view" and then drag and drop my apps form one desktop to another, and finally click on the desired desktop. If I'm not in the same desktop of the apps that
    I want to move, I also need to wait 2 ou 3 seconds with my mouse stopped over the right desktop.... It is a little bit complicated process... It slow me down.

    If create a "desktop reorder" is complicated... a shortcut to switch between the desktop and move my target app with me, will be very nice.

    This is what I have for now. Thanks for any reply and my apologies about my English.
