I have a question regarding Edge in Windows 10 with respect to "multiple desk tops".
Ive noticed that after opening a web site with Edge in the first desktop and then adding a second desktop (+,) that when I try to open a different website in desktop #2 WITH EDGE, it reverts back to the first desktop and wont allow you to open it in the second desk top as long as you are using Edge in desktop #2 after using Edge in desktop #1.
I'm not sure why this is the case, but I would imagine that quite a few people would like to be able to open websites on different desk tops using Edge in both. I don't think this can be done by simply creating a second desktop and trying to open a website with Edge after using Edge in desk top #1.
You can move a website using Edge in Desktop #1 to Desktop #2 (using Edge as well) by dragging and dropping from desktop #1 to desktop #2. This is fine, but I think it would be a lot better to be able to open a website directly in desk top #2 using Edge rather than having to drag and drop from desktop #1.
Is it possible to have a single application, for example Outlook, appear on multiple virtual desktops? I use different desktops to separate the opened windows for multiple clients. However, something like Outlook would be applicable to all clients.
Say I have a desktop 1 with MS Word open. If I then open another desktop (desktop 2), and then open a word file from my hard drive on desktop 2, windows 10 will take me out of desktop 2, put be back on desktop 1, and then open the file I requested. I then have to open the desktop switcher, and manually drag the word document from desktop 1 to desktop 2.
Effectively, if I have a window of one application open in one desktop, and I then open the same application in a different desktop, windows will move me back to the original desktop and open the application there.
This is extremely annoying and occurs with all applications, is there any way to fix it?
Basically, I want to have this one application window appear on all desktops. I'd like to be able to do it without having to pay for other software to achieve this. (DisplayFusion will do it, but for a fee of $25. And I really don't want to run another process and pay for the use of just one feature.)
I like to hear some music in background while I'm working, like everyone does. So I fire off some playlist on youtube in some browser and put that browser in its own desktop. But recently I stumbled upon PerfectTube (check it out here [URL] .... ).
So instead of a browser I began to use PerfectTube but it seems that the App works as long as I'm in the same virtual desktop as the App is, if we switch the desktop the playback pauses( in some seconds). I first thought it was something to do with the App, so I tried other Apps, even they seem to suspend when in some other desktop.
Is there a way, a registry hack or some toggle I missed, to let the apps remain alive even when present in an other desktop. There seems to be no such problem with desktop applications like wmp or vlc.
Possibly in Windows XP when it was installed, in order to have several desktops, dealing with various subjects, I simply created a whole bunch of User Accounts. So, I changed user accounts to get to the desktop I wanted.
Now that I have Windows10, is there an advantage to using the New Desktop feature? I'd just have one user account then.
I'm using Fences to sort my desktops.
Also, my data, which shows up in my desktops is stored on a separate partition from C drive.
Is it possible to place different sets of icons on different desktop ? For example, having desktop 1 empty, desktop 2 full of files, desktop 3 with shortcuts to programmes/games, etc. Also is there a way to have a different wallpaper on each desktop, to tell them apart faster ?
My guess is all of that is not possible, given that additional desktops are not supposed to be "permanent", but rather added/deleted quickly. But maybe with a bit of tweaking ?
My intention of using the HDD is to have it "mobile" and move it from my W7 desktop, W10 laptop, W10 insider and W10 RTM machines for storing images etc. It work's as expected when connected to W7 and my W10 laptop. It will not however work with either of my W10 desktop machines. i.e. When connected, it says the disk must be initialized before it can be recognized. I am using usb type connections, but I am guessing? Initializing will render the data on there now as useless?
Virtual desktops but IMO shouldn't each desktop run an application unaware that another instance might be running on another desktop. The OS itself can keep track of shared storage areas etc so we aren't talking here about running separate virtual machines.
What I'm thinking of as an example is say I'm running EXCEL on VD1 and I'm downloading data from the web. On VD2 I should be able to start another instance of EXCEL and download data from another website.
BOTH applications should still run irrespective of which desktop is the active one. I get the impression that the NON active desktops don't still continue to run processes in the background if they are essentially a "shared process" like EXCEL.
I've just started using Virtual Desktops on my Windows 10 Pro Laptop & wondered if the layout(s) of apps was preserver through power cycles (Reboots/shutdown & startup, or if they require setting up after each bootup?
Can Virtual Desktops be saved from session to session?
Can I recall today's Virtual Desktops with all their windows, documents, and open applications when I restart the computer tomorrow? Can the session and the Desktops be saved before shutting down the computer?
Sometimes I like to have two web pages open at the same time. With windows 8 all I had to do was right click on the IE icon and the option to open another window was there, but that option isn't there in Windows 10.
I have a new Alienware PC that came with Windows 8.1. Everything was working great. I went on vacation and came back last Saturday the 8th. Turned it on and let it run. I believe several patches were installed (MS updates). Strangely, I noticed my Acronis Trueimage 2015 was stuck at "calculating" for the next job.
Now onto Windows 10. I noticed that the update was available and thought I could fix Acronis after the W10 upgrade. Upgrade complete... no issues, no errors, looked good.Since upgrading I noticed Windows Live mail would just hang on the intro screen. Uninstalled. Upon re-install of Windows Essentials it just hangs on the install screen
Acronis: Uninstalled, reinstalled. It is still hanging on the "calculating time".Windows update: I thought, "maybe there is a patch out there". When I run Windows update it shows (3) available. When I tell it to install/download it just hangs at 0% downloading.I have to think all of these issues tie back to something common. I am not software savy enough to know where to start. The only step I have taken so far is to make sure Java is on the latest version. After that-- still all the same symptoms.
I have multiple users on my laptop running Windows 10 Pro and when I boot it up the first screen shows me a list of those users in the lower left corner, in addition, when I am logged in I can select the start button and at the top click on my name and see a list of users allowing me to log out and log someone else in.
On my desktop running Windows s10 Pro (same versions) these are not showing either at startup or after logging in. Both devices have the same three users and both devices user settings seem to be the same.
How to get the desktop to list the users on the first screen and how to get them listed once someone is logged in? I want the laptop and the desktop to display the same information.
So, just out of the blue, out of nowhere, this problem started to occur. This only happens in minecraft too, I try and press space bar to jump, X to sprint, and w to move forward, and when I try to do this, only 1-2 of my key presses will register, for example sometimes I will start moving forward and be jumping, but my key press on X will not register and I wont sprint. I varies randomly, I sometimes will be moving forward and sprinting, but despite holding the spacebar, I wont be jumping. What would also happen is I would hit a key, say space, and it would not register the first key press, but if I pressed it again almost immediately, it would work.
I am using a Razer Blackwidow Chroma, and I already tried uninstalled razer synapse and reinstalling it. Did not work. I tried on another keyboard, and ran into the same issue, so this ruled out it being the keyboard's fault. I've uninstalled Minecraft completely, and reinstalled it, no luck, I uninstalled and reinstalled java, no luck. The weird thing is that this only happens in Minecraft. For example if I go into a text document, I can spam all the buttons I want, including space, and they all register. I'm thinking about reinstalling windows. I don't <<edited>> understand why out of the blue, my key presses are not registering/being insanely unresponsive.
I was also experiencing input lag at times, I would hit a button, and there would be about a half a second delay before it registered in game. Again, this only happens in minecraft. I just played CS:Go for about 45 minutes and did not experience any problems.
I've experienced multiple BSOD's in a while now. It occurs several times every day. I thought it was an issue with my graphics card, since it often occured using Adobe Illustrator and other GPU needing applications. Today I replaced my graphics card and I got a BSOD a few minutes later.
