    Way to get different desktop icons on different desktops in task view?


    Is it possible when I go to task view and choose a different desktop that I could have certain desktop icons only on one?

    I don't think there is a way to do that. Everytime you create a new desktop, it always looks like the original.

    No.

    This is actually why the current Windows 10 "support" for multiple desktops has been laughed out of serious consideration. Proper multidesktop support implies, first and foremost, support for different backgrounds and different shortcut sets on different desktops. Windows 10 does not have that.

    This is disappointing. Hopefully they will improve this feature in future releases.
