    Same. Still funny though.

        Currently using Dexpot with Windows 10 on my 40" 4k monitor, mainly so I can have one desktop with all my work stuff and others with shortcuts to non-work stuff.

        Got the background colours set to differentiate so easy to see which virtual desktop I'm on before wondering where the shortcuts have gone, and set it to use keyboard shortcuts (Alt+1, Alt+2 etc) to switch between them so no visible clue to my hidden desktops if I've got anything sensitive on there.

        I was sure Windows had finally added multiple desktops? Maybe only on servers? I know it's a feature on MacOS though I've never learned how it works. One desktop is confusing enough

            I'm a simple person...how does having multiple desktops give you more screen real estate? If you're effectively switching between windows, that doesn't give you more space to work with.

              Task management - desktop 1 is for work, desktop 2 contains email allowing them to be hidden while you concentrate on what you need to do today.

                If i'm doing video editing, the video is open on one screen, the editing software on another. When developing, I have the editor on one, and whatever reference I might be using on the other. This gets more critical is my eyes get older...

                  I get both of those use cases but you don't need multiple desktops to achieve it, that's where I'm struggling

                    I can look at three different things at once and not faff with zoning. Call me a heathen, but I am skeptical that zoning plays nicely with all software, like screen-sharing software (does it?). Also, I never liked wrap-around shades.

                      If you run every application full-screen then sure. If you perhaps like to have two word documents open side-by-side as you are developing, simple alt-tab doesn't work as smoothly to toggle between coding and Word.
