Windows 10: Different shortcut icons on different desktops

  1.    05 Aug 2015 #1

    Different shortcut icons on different desktops


    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 ?

    yes it is possible but with dexpot as virtual desktop manager - custom wallpaper per desktop - auto launch app when starting windows - custom icons on desktops ... )

    I tested it under win 10240 - 10586 without major issue .
