I can't seem to find a good answer on this so maybe someone out there has a solution. I use multiple desktops and I will be running an event where my Windows 10 machine will be hooked up to a projector. I want to assign the full screen application to a desktop on the projector, but I know that I will be using multiple Virtual Desktops while running the event, but I want the projector/monitor to always stay locked to that Virtual Desktop. Is this possible in Windows 10? I know in OSX it's possible.

So to recap:

Monitor 1 - swapping between multiple virtual desktops
Monitor 2 (projector) - locked on 1 virtual desktop


Since the Windows 10 November Update, right-clicking a window in the Win+Tab view will show a context menu with the option to show it on all virtual desktops. This is not perfect, but it might be an acceptable solution for you.

    This should actually work for what I'm trying to accomplish. Thank you! I did not realize this was an option. Microsoft, if you're out there, it would still be nice to be able to detach these desktops :-) – erwstout Jul 20 '17 at 16:52
