    Cannot open additional virtual desktops

    OS Windows 10 - I cannot enable a new virtual desktop. After opening windows, when I click on taskview, the existing file is is seen as a preview (small size) along with any other files opened earlier. But there is no dialogue like ‘add new desktop’ either at right hand bottom corner or any other place. I am forced to open all files in the same (1st and only) desktop. Any suggestion as to how to be able to add more desktops will be welcome.

    Windows 10 (Pro and Insider Pro)

    Which build? It was a known issue in the last few Insider builds

    No option to add new desktop at the top?

    Try shortcut:
    Windows+Ctrl+D: Create a new virtual desktop and switch to it

    Cannot open additional virtual desktops

    Build of software - Windows 10; do not know anything more. The laptop was recently purchased about 1 month back with OS installed.

    Build of Laptop - ASUS with intel i5 7th or 8th gen processor; Motherboard - not known; RAM -8 GB

    Windows key + ctrl + D - nothing happens no such dialogue as ‘add new desktop’ appears anywhere or any additional desktop seen at top. Tried Windows key + Alt+ D; Windows key + Shift + D; Windows key + Tab + D Windows key + Tab +ctrl + D; Windows key + Tab + Alt + D. Nothing happens.
