Windows 10: Virtual desktop switch

  1.    17 Jul 2015 #1

    Virtual desktop switch


    win+tab opens virtual desktop switch ... but by repeated press it again disappears instead of continuing to next desktop :/

    do you know how to advance to next desktop ? by keyboard not by pointing cursor over 2nd desktop ???
    (win+tab+1 .... did not worked)


    alt+tab - switch dialogue between desktop apps or between all apps (is not the solution)

    any other shortcuts ? in this department ?

    thx

    Ctrl + + D adds a 'Virtual Desktop'
    Ctrl + + F4 deletes a desktop
    Ctrl + + forward or back arrows switches desktops.

    He means left and right, not up and down.

    You can also use Win + Tab, then release the keys, then you can use tab (with no modifiers) until the highlight is on the virtual desktops at the bottom and use arrow keys to move between them... press enter or space to select. Ctrl-Win-LArrow or RArrow are faster.
