    Hi, virtual desktop in Win 10 is pretty basic- Just key combos to create new, next, previous, delete desktops.

    3rd party apps have been around to provide various styles of virtual desktops, from cubes to 360 degrees, for a long time and some of these are more sophisticated then Windows'.

    It would be pretty easy to set up a hotkey for a shortcut pointing to a simple script that would, say, go to the previous desktop and launch T'bird, but I don't think that would be very useful.

    As far as I know you couldn't specify, say, Desktop 2.

    I'm saying there isn't the control you want. Sorry. Win 10 Virtual Desktops is quite basic. Do you understand me?

    You could see if a 3rd party desktop program for virtual desktops meets your requirements.
