Virtual Desktops were finally added as a builtin feature for Windows 10.
If you've used Linux or Mac you probably know this is a very useful feature.
If you open a lot of programs at once thisfeature will allow you to keep them organized.
There are two ways to get to Virtual Desktops.
You can click here on the Task View and then here to create a new desktop.
This is the new desktop we've just created.
You can also do the same thing by hitting Ctrl + Windows key + D to create a new desktopas well.
You can see that we now have the third desktop.
As always with Windows there's usually more than one way to get the same thing done.
If you're using a tablet or a desktop thathas a touch screen monitor you can access Task View and Virtual Desktops by swiping from the left.
To scroll forward through your virtual desktop use Windows key + Ctrl + Right and to go backwards Windows key + Ctrl + Left.
To close the desktop that you are currently on use Windows key + Ctrl +F4.
