    Virtual Desktop - Skype IM popping up on alternate Virtual Desktop


    Hi, please forgive me if this has already been asked, I have run a search on "Virtual Desktop" but found almost 2000 results.

    If I have 2 virtual desktops VD1 and VD2 for explanation sake.

    I have various items open on both VD1 and VD2, VD1 is a project I'm working on and VD2 is fun/social.

    One of the items running on VD2 is Skype, but while I'm working on my project I don't want Skype bothering me. However, when somebody sends me an IM it pops up on the taskbar in VD1 and distracts me from whatever I'm doing.

    I'm sure this happens with more than just Skype (but I haven't noticed yet). Is there anyway to instruct Windows not to allow VD crossovers?

    Thanks in advance.

    :)

    virtual desktops and notifications from hidden desktop

    hi

    on hidden virtual desktop application
    sometimes shows an error. This error
    pops up on my current virtual desktop.
    Is not that a mistake? Second observation: application
    launches another application on a hidden
    virtual desktop. This application runs on
    my active desktop and interferes with
    work!

    Unwanted pop-up

    The MS alert message "Windows 10: It’s time to review your privacy settings to get ready for the next update ..... " appears in and overlays my work in my current window. This message box "take over" my current window and I can not delete of it. When
    I open a new Virtual Desktop, it pops up there too. I have tried opening multiple Virtual Desktops then done a computer re-start. And sometimes the message box will pop up and stay in the first Virtual Desktop but at other times it infects all the Virtual
    Desktops. How can I delete this message box.
