With the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, Microsoft has introduced a couple of new improvements around the Task View feature, which gives users an overview of all their open apps as well as access to virtual desktops. In the past, Task View was pretty basic, but with the Anniversary Update, Microsoft has added a few additional options that make using it far more productive.
The first new addition to Task View is the ability to pin an open window so it's available on every virtual desktop. Doing this is easy, simply right click an open window while in Task View and you will be presented with two options:
- Show this window on all desktops
- Show windows from this app on all desktops
Both functions do pretty much the same thing, except the latter makes it so if an app has multiple windows open, all those windows will be pinned rather than just the one. There's also additional support for multiple-monitor users too, with the option of pinning an app to any particular monitor regardless of the virtual desktop.
Microsoft has also added a new touchpad gesture for Task View too, making it super easy to switch between Virtual Desktops without needing to open Task View first. With 3 fingers on a precision touchpad, swipe left and right when multiple desktops are open and you'll find you can switch between all your open desktops with ease.
