Back when Windows 10 was launched a year ago, it introduced virtual desktops to the Windows experience. As we have previously covered in our how-to guide, virtual desktops is a nifty feature which lets you organize and multitask when you have multiple programs, apps, or windows open. A Redditor, however, wants to take the experience to the next level and has designed a tool to enhance the functionality of virtual desktops.

Available on Github, the Virtual Desktop Enhancer is designed to make using Windows 10 virtual desktops easier. While not exactly polished as of yet, it adds in three additional features to the experience. The first of these is an extra keyboard shortcut to navigate to a virtual desktop directly through the use of Left Alt and #’s 1-9. Next is the ability to set a custom wallpaper for each virtual desktop. Lastly is a new indicator in the tray area for the currently active desktop.

So, if you’re adventurous enough to try out the tool, be sure to head over to Github to find the files and instructions on how to use the tool. The developer hopes that it will become more polished as more folks use it, so the experience could improve in the future.
