    Used to use multi desktop early on and getting things to show across desktops for apps you wanted in more than one desktop was difficult. This now appears to have become easy while I was away from Windows multideskopt. Returning now and started to try to use multidesktop again and now every time I open a browser it becomes part of every desktop. This is crazy. Defeats the purpose completely. How do I disable this ? I must be missing some setting somewhere ?

    :)

    Can't Set Chrome As Default Browser in Windows 10

    Want to get the latest scoop on a Win10/Default Browser problem that's been discussed before. Google Chrome is (was?) my default browser. Recently alerted to Office updates (have Office 365). Update wasn't successful, so I let it go. Then, when I clicked
    on Chrome on the desktop -- NOTHING, ZILCH. Yet Microsoft Edge loads fine. Settings/Default Apps/Web Browser showed Edge, clicked on it, selected Chrome form the icon list - fine - but when I tried to activate it from the desktop - again, NOTHING. What's
    going on...?

    Uninstalled/reinstalled Chrome and the desktop icon says "new_chrome" (an updated version?). It works fine and includes all the Favorites, like before. But when I go into Settings/Default Apps and click on Edge to show the other default browser choices,
    Chrome is NOT listed. It's also not listed under general Apps and Features. In addition, every web site icon I have on the desktop (e.g., Amazon) is now shown with an Edge icon and opens only within the Edge browser. And when I open Chrome from the desktop,
    it asks to make it default. I click to do so, the Apps list appears, but Chrome, again, is NOT shown in the Default Apps/Web Browser list. I think the Office Update screwed things up. So..... how do I make Chrome the "complete" default browser?...... which,
    I guess, is another way of asking: how do I get Chrome into the Default Apps/Web Browser list? HELP.... anyone?
