Windows 10

One of the many new features in Windows 10 is the introduction of a native multi-desktop switcher called Task View. Windows users can finally use a built-in UI to create new desktops and organize their windows productively.

Task View in the most recent public build of Windows 10 works fine, but is somewhat confusing to a number of users. Task View seems to display your open windows on all desktops, even if the window that’s open is on a completely different desktop than the one currently. This isn’t the expected behavior of a multi-desktop tool, and it appears Microsoft understands that.

WinBeta understands that in the most recent builds of Windows 10, Microsoft has added the option to change this behavior, making windows only display on the desktop they were opened in, meaning you can finally truly keep your desktops organized productively. Unfortunately, there’s still no word whether Task View supports multiple desktop backgrounds just yet, but we imagine if there’s high-demand for it that it will eventually happen.
