    Desktop Pages


    Hi,
    I wanted to know if there is a way to create an additional desktop page much like you see on tablets or mobile devices instead of creating a virtual desktop?

    I am using Windows 10 version 1809

    Thank you.

    No, just virtual desktops.

    Do you mean 'Tablet mode'? I think it might well be what you are referring to.

    In Tablet mode, the Start menu expands to fill the screen. It is then called the 'Start screen'.

    If you use the tutorial you'll see it in action.

    You might also like to read Use your PC like a tablet - MSSupport but I think the tutorial is better.

    I don't think Table Mode works for me. I just want to get a clean desktop page for video demonstration. I want to keep my original desktop icons but I don't want them to appear for a secondary desktop page. I tried using virtual desktop but if I remove the icons from it, it will also remove it from the original desktop.

    The only thing I can think of is to create a new user with admin rights.

    If you have an external monitor, you could 'Extend' to that. That would give you the clear background you want.

    I don't have a second monitor. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    If viewing videos I will frequently hit F11 to get Full Screen [different from Maximized] which hides toolbar/s of the program playing them. Notebooks may have a key combination of Fn plus F11 to do it or just F11.
