WS Virtual Desktop Tool

WS Virtual Desktop Tool is our utility that improves upon the Windows 10 Virtual Desktop feature. Its menu is accessible through the Windows System Tray (the area left to the clock) and gives a compact overview of your open application windows. The shortcut for this menu is WIN+ESC. If the icon is hidden behind the 'Show hidden icons'-arrow, you can simply drag it to any visible part of the systray.

This utility lets you switch between multiple virtual desktops and move windows instantly with keyboard shortcuts. It also allows you to configure different wallpapers for each virtual desktop. When you switch to another virtual desktop, its associated wallpaper is automatically shown. To configure different wallpapers, just do so through the usual Windows Background settings (ms-settings:personalization-background). Hint: pin the Settings app with WIN+INS so it stays visible on all virtual desktops.

WIN + ESC
  > Opens menu
