In this video we take a look at how to create multiple desktops in Windows 10. Using task view you can see the timeline by default and on the top we add new desktops and you can now rename them as well.

Quite a timely release of this video. I have a client who's offices I recently moved from Windows 7 desktops to Windows 10. The employees are all very new to Windows 10 and don't know about all the advantages it offers. One of the things I'm sure they'll find useful is multiple desktops, so I'll be including a link to this video into an upcoming article and then making them all aware of it.

Thanks for making this. Endorsed.

Regards, Andrew

Edward is there any trick I'm not aware of to rename the desktops as per your video. When I click on the top of the new desktops, I don't get the opportunity to rename them, Windows simply switches to whichever desktop I've clicked on?

I'm on Windows 10, Version 1909 (OS Build 18363.657)

Any ideas?

Hi Andrew

I am running Windows Insider Preview (fast ring) and it was enabled in this latest version i made a video about. It should come to the standard updates quite soon.

Kind regards
