    Apps opened on one virtual desktop now appearing on ALL taskbars!


    I've got several virtual desktops and what I'm now finding is any application I open is now appearing in the taskbar on ALL my virtual desktops even though it's only been opened on one of the virtual desktops. Not sure how this started happening but it was fine before, very annoying. When I click on it in another virtual desktop the display switches back to the virtual desktop where it was actually opened.

    Please don't confuse this with the option I've set to view the taskbar on both my monitors (dual monitor setup).

    How on earth do I resolve this please?

    Hello Gusgf,

    You can use step 4 in Option One of the tutorial below to set to show windows that are open on Only the desktop I'm using to not have them show on the taskbar of all desktops.
