    The word current is what you need to focus on. Windows 10 allows virtual desktops. The question is asking if you want to see things on the taskbar for all desktops or just the desktop you are currently using.

    Task View for Desktops - Open and Use in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    EDIT: the correct answer (IMO) is yes, apps shown on the taskbar should be scoped to the current desktop.

    It kind of sounds like they're asking which stored app's you want pinned to the taskbar on each different desktop you create. It would definitely be a neat feature, if that's what they mean. I guess only time will tell.

    I'm in agreement with you; that sentence just does not make grammatical sense. Here's what I found on Dictionary.com:

    scope [skohp]
    /skoʊp/ Noun

    1. extent or range of view, outlook, application, operation, effectiveness, etc.: an investigation of wide scope.
    2. space for movement or activity; opportunity for operation: to give one's fancy full scope.
    3. extent in space; a tract or area.
    4. length: a scope of cable.
    5. aim or purpose.
    6. Linguistics, Logic. the range of words or elements of an expression over which a modifier or operator has control: In “old men and women,” “old” may either take “men and women” or just “men” in its scope.
    7. (used as a short form of microscope, oscilloscope, periscope, radarscope, riflescope, telescopic sight, etc.)

    Verb (used with object), scoped, scoping.

    8. Slang. to look at, read, or investigate, as in order to evaluate or appreciate.

    Verb phrases

    9. scope out, Slang.
    • to look at or over; examine; check out: a rock musician scoping out the audience before going on stage.
    • to master; figure out: By the time we'd scoped out the problem, it was too late.

      ----------------------
      Once I've read all this, I still cannot resolve the sentence. I belong to a group that "proofs" documentation. We get the document, see if we can easily follow the steps given, and if not, why can't we. We discuss everything about the document. One of the things we have found is that if the document is for French speaking folks, it should be written by a French person. If it's for German, a German should write it and so on . . . And, as we all know, US English is the most complicated language on Earth. I don't know if something like that didn't happen or what, but, bottom line; it just does not make any sense to me.

      Lessee now . . . I scoped the deer; meaning I looked at the deer through a telescope on a rifle. I scoped out the good looking fruit in the produce aisle; meaning I checked out or looked at it.

    I've had the same Feedback question. I think it was spurred by this new feature:

    Scope has another meaning in computer science. It means where a something is visible. For example the scope of a variable in a computer program may be global (seen through the whole program) or local (visible only within a specific module or procedure or whatever). Scope (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In this sense if "apps on your taskbar are scoped to the current desktop" then this means "only apps for the current desktop are visible" (as opposed to all apps for all desktops being visible).

    Not a particularly good choice of words come to think of it...

    Yes, Adam, this I can agree with. Used in this form, scope isn't only for computer science. . . within the scope of this, that or the other . . . is something I've read numerous times. Answering questions about chickens is not within the scope of this course on geese. *Smile Egg laying habits of robins is not within the scope of The Life and Times of Hummingbirds. *Smile

    Sorry, "scoped to the current desktop" does not compute! *Smile Simply put, used in this context, "scoped" is a verb and "the scope of a variable" in my opinion, does not lend itself to "scoped" in such context.

    Nope, not a good choice of wording at all, and as far as I'm concerned, incorrect usage of the English language.

    Today when I was moving from Desktop "A" to Desktop "B" a pop up note from the Notifications widget on the taskbar appeared with the same question, more or less with the same wording but disappeared to fast for me to click on it. I'll be watching for that sucker in the future! *Wink

    It should still be in the Notifications Window.
