In addition, Windows 10 lets you move various windows between virtual desktops to organize them in a useful way, and finally gives you the option to rename a virtual desktop.

The ability to rename virtual desktops started with Windows 10 version 18963 (20H1 which is now in fast ring). Prior to this update, virtual desktops were simply called "Desktop 1", "Desktop 2" and so on. In 20H1 you can give them easy names like "Office", "Browsers", etc.

For Mac OSX and Linux users, the virtual desktop feature did not impress them, as they have had it in their operating systems for a very long time, but for traditional PC users who have been using Windows since birth, it is a step forward.

Multi-surface capability actually exists from Windows 2000 at the API level. Some third-party applications use these APIs to power virtual desktops, but Windows had made this feature very difficult to use.

Task View with Timeline came to Windows 10 him April 2018 (version 1803). With it you can create a new virtual desktop using the "View Jobs" icon or with a keyboard shortcut (hotkey). Let's look at these methods.
