    multiple desktops


    anyone else seeing this issue on 10130?
    1. Open two desktops
    2. Open edge on desktop 1
    3. Go to desktop 2, and open edge
    4. It will take you to the open instance on desktop 1

    and
    1. open two desktops
    2. open 3 or 4 apps on desktop 1
    3. open some apps on desktop 2
    4. do all app view on desktop 1 and it will show just the apps open on that desktop
    5. go to desktop 2 and do the same, it will show all apps open on both desktops

    weird... shoddy implementation it would seem

    yeah I noticed that awhile back when I first tried using that feature , mine does as you describe ,at first I thought what a great idea and though I might be able to actually have 2 desktops with different icons even ,that would be nice ,but it does not would like that either ,,so for me its a dead feature, unless in the final release it works the way we think it should to be a neat feature

    It's not a problem with multiple desktops. It's a problem with Universal apps. You will notice the same thing with any Universal app, like the weather app or what not.

    I believe they're working on it, but I doubt this will get fixed for RTM.

    I got a BSOD trying some of the OP's scenarios. Strange.
