One neat feature of Windows 10 is the ability to have multiple desktops. That means you could have one desktop reserved for work and another for games. If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, allow me to demonstrate how it works.

To get started, go ahead a click on the Timeline icon to the right of the search box.

If you don’t see that icon, right-click on a blank spot on the taskbar and choose Show task view button from the menu that pops up.

At the top left of the page, click on New desktop.

You’ll see options for Desktop 1, Desktop 2, and creating a New desktop.

Click on New desktop to add an additional desktop.

Let’s click on Desktop 2 and start creating a dedicated workspace for graphics and photos program. I’ll open my graphics programs and arrange them.

Meanwhile, on Desktop 1, I’ll open a Word document and my email.

On Desktop 3, I’ll set up with a browser open to Facebook and a game.

I can leave the programs open and click on the Task view icon to navigate between them. (or press the Windows key + Tab) Hover your mouse pointer over the desktop and get a preview of what programs are open. Just click on the name to move between them.
