Multiple Desktops in Windows 10

Multiple desktops is a great feature, allowing you to organize separate workflows and quickly switch between. It can be accessed in two ways.

  1. Clicking the task view button.
  2. Or pressing the windows and tab key, simultaneously.

Once there click “New Desktop” and a second blank desktop will appear. You can drag open windows into this desktop to place them in there.

One thing I like to do is place my browser in a second desktop, and use the key shortcuts CTRL + Windows+Left Arrow Key or CTRL + Windows Right Arrow Key to quickly switch between desktops. This provides a quick way to jump into your browser to look stuff up and jump back into your other application.

I frequently find myself in PowerShell so I’ll often throw up a session on the last desktop to jump into whenever I want. So its rather quick to jump into that session.
