Windows 10: Should I change my User Accounts to desktops?

    Should I change my User Accounts to desktops?


    Hi. Possibly in Windows XP when it was installed, in order to have several desktops, dealing with various subjects, I simply created a whole bunch of User Accounts. So, I changed user accounts to get to the desktop I wanted.

    Now that I have Windows10, is there an advantage to using the New Desktop feature? I'd just have one user account then. Thanks.

    Edit: I'm using Fences to sort my desktops.

    Edit: Also, my data, which shows up in my desktops is stored on a separate partition from C drive.

    Welcome to the forums Richard 2277. I would recommend you try it as it seems to do what you need it to. Should be quicker than logging off and on.

    Hi. Thanks for the welcome. Yes, logging in and logging off is a nuisance. I should give it a try on one desktop and see what I get from an experience. If I have any problems creating the desktop I'll post here.

    Hello Richard, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    In addition, you might also give task view a play with for virtual desktops to see if that may work for you as well.
