I am trying to find a way to emulate Mac OS X’s "Displays have separate spaces" in Windows 10. I would like separate virtual desktops per display.


To add a new virtual desktop on Windows 10, use the keyboard shortcut Windows Key + Ctrl + D. To quickly switch between virtual desktops, use Windows Key + Tab.

Alternatively, you can also add virtual desktops by using Windows Key + Tab and clicking New Desktop in the lower right hand corner.

    not entirely - specifically this.. support.apple.com/kb/PH18809 'displays have separate spaces' A Space is not necessarily assigned to a specific screen & changing Spaces doesn't affect all screens, only the one changed. ie, 2 screens, 2 independent Space possibilities on either. – Tetsujin Sep 5 '15 at 5:14
