    Issue with multiple desktops (task view?) and opening applications


    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?

    Thanks in advanced for the help!

    Same complaint for me, this is super annoying. Very few event should automatically force virtual desktop switching (I can only see notification clicking, which is actually an action). I hope microsoft fixes that
