Windows 10: Multiple Desktops - Applications keep jumping between desktops on wake
Multiple Desktops - Applications keep jumping between desktops on wake
I keep 2 virtual desktops, one for my personal applications and the other for official work.
I have multiple windows of Google Chrome on both the desktops, some excel windows, PDF files etc.
Whenever my computer wakes from sleep, the entire arrangement gets messed up and I have to manually drag back the windows into their respective desktops.
This is a very annoying issue. Any way to solve this?
While this may not work it is worth a try. It appears Desktop themes may / can cause icons to be moved.
See if this helps. Link says 7, article says it works on all modern versions.
I use a 3rd party application for multiple Desktops. I have two Desktops set up for when I open the program. You can set specific keyboard shortcuts to move items from Desktop 1 to Desktop 2 and vice versa. Also, a keyboard shortcut to switch from Desktop 1 to Desktop 2 and vice versa. As a matter of fact, I also have my mouse's Back/Front buttons ( microsoft wireless mouse 5000 - Bing images ) to switch desktops. I don't like the Microsoft version of multiple desktops, because of lacking the ability to customize options. This program is called Dexpot
do you use dexpot under w10?
do you use the portable version or the installation version ?
The installation version.
may i ask a question?
how can i set in dexpot to run an application on desktop 2 , and when i close it (the application) to switch to desktop 1?
I think there's some way to do what you want it to do, yet I don't exactly know how to do that.
It's best if you ask the people at the Dexpot forums:
Go to: Dexpot Forum | Index page
Press the Second link: Support
Press the New Topic button (you might have to create a free account to post the question there)
Hope you find your answer!
