Create a new virtual desktop in Windows

Applies to: Windows 10

Ever run into this problem? Too many applications open on a single screen. If you only have a single monitor this could get messy really quick. Thankfully, Windows 10 is the first time we see multiple desktops as a mainstream feature.

You can segregate each desktop as a separate work space by the task you are doing. E.g. Main one for browsing, second desktop for just news apps open etc…

There is no limit to the number. Want to know how do to this? You’ll need to have a Windows 10 based operating system to do so and all it takes is some keyboard shortcuts.

Here’s how –

Adding a new virtual desktop: Windows logo key  + Ctrl + D

Switch between virtual desktop: Windows logo key  + Ctrl + Right arrow/Left arrow

Close a virtual desktop: Windows logo key  + Ctrl + F4

Now, go out and show your friends 🙂
