You can also drag a window from one desktop to another, and switch to the other desktop with the Windows+Tab keyboard shortcut.

Other shortcuts that will make using multiple virtual desktops easier:

● WIN + CTRL + LEFT/RIGHT: Switch to the previous or next desktop
● WIN + CTRL + D: Create a new desktop
● WIN + CTRL + F4: Close the current desktop

It’s a great way to organize and group files and programs based on when and how you need to use them.
