Microsoft’s Gabe Aul took to Twitter to declare the virtual desktops feature in Windows 10 and the inspiration behind the idea. When designing the new virtual desktop feature, the Windows team had a few objectives in mind to provide the client with the best possible experience. Some of the essential areas of focus included:

  • Give you more desktop space to group related windows
  • Help you rapidly locate and switch to any window or group of windows
  • Give you a chance to effectively re-arrange your groups and move windows as tasks evolve
  • Keep you in control of the degree of separation between your grouped windows

Commonly, those in the “Windows Insider” program have officially experienced the virtual desktop feature and judging from the feedback, Microsoft is looking to expedite some improvements and upcoming features. Although it is unclear when the updates will hit, Microsoft will implement a technique for dragging any window into the desktop right from task view. Microsoft is likewise planning to take it a step further by implementing a one step feature that will allowing you to drag a desktop thumbnail to the “new desktop” button to create a totally new desktop.

Finally, Microsoft is requesting your assistance in choosing how windows should be be represented on the virtual desktop taskbar. At present, there are two groups of clients; one expects to just see open windows that are only on the current desktop, while the others expect the taskbar to give them access to all their open windows at once. Microsoft considers both options necessary, which is the reason both alternatives will be available in Windows 10. But, Microsoft needs your help choosing which one should be the default view. As a result, they will implement a pop-up survey during your experience.

Windows 10 is set to release in the Summer of 2015. The OS will be free for the first year for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 clients.
