    Application doesn't work with virtual desktops in Windows 10.


    Hi,

    I use an application which doesn't seem to work with virtual desktops in Windows 10. The application becomes slower and slower when I have more than one desktop and after a while it takes a couple of minutes to open it and sometimes it doesn't open at all. When I reboot it works for a little while and then it slows down and becomes unresponsive again. If I delete the virtual desktops the application starts working normally again.

    I have run it for hours now without problems. Then I created a second desktop and after a little while the application is unresponsive again. Is this a known problem with applications that they may not work with the new virtual desktops in Windows 10? I guess there's nothing I can do about it other than reporting it as a bug with the application developer?

    Hi, not heard anything like that. Would you care to advise the name of the program and its home page? Thanks.

    I was wrong. It has started happening when I have only one desktop. It just takes a little longer before the application slows down and becomes unresponsive. The application in question is Glary Utilities 5.5. It has some features I use all the time like file splitting and a good process manager. I have used the application for years on other flavors of Windows without problems, but on my current Windows 10 install it grinds to a halt after having been open for a little while. I have no problems with any other application, only thin one. The screenshots are after I have waiting a couple of minutes for the application to show up at all.

    Ok. I sometimes run Glary (Pro version) and it's fine.. suggest you look for things possibly conflicting with it.
    Try a clean boot analysis for starters:
