The default behavior of the Windows 10 taskbar when multiple desktops are in use is to show only the programs open on the current desktop. Is there a way to show all programs on the taskbar, and to make it so clicking on a running program on another desktop switches desktops instead of opening a new Window?


This is a Windows setting that can be changed:

  • Run Settings

  • Open System

  • Choose Multitasking

  • Click the down-arrow under On the taskbar, show windows that are open on, and select All desktops.
