    What is the advantage of using virtual desktops over just windows?

    Very sorry if this seems a dumb question. I have never used virtual desktops and would like to know what is the advantage of using them rather than just separate windows, for example I might have 3 windows open, perhaps Photoshop, File explorer and Waterfox/firefox, how would it be better if each was on it's own desktop?

    (I Have 2 PC's connected to 2 monitors and can use either or both on either PC so I do sometimes use multiple monitors but mostly just stick to the one 24" screen.)

    Hello Scrimper,

    Task View is a virtual desktop manager that allows you to quickly switch between all of your open apps on multiple desktops. Create custom additional desktops to group apps for productivity, entertainment, or whatever you choose. This makes multitasking and organizing your opened apps much easier.

    Basically, you can have separate desktops organized how you like with their own opened windows.
