Windows 10: Virtual Desktop Keyboard Shortcuts

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Windows 10

One of the great new features in Windows 10, is the addition of virtual desktops. This feature gives you the ability to add additional workspaces, customized to suit your needs. It’s a multi-tasker’s dream come true.   You can have one desktop for work and other for home use. Or perhaps one devoted to games and another to project you’re working on Along with virtual desktops, you get a brand new set of keyboard shortcuts.


  • Switching between Virtual desktops:

You can use “WinKEY + ctrl +Left Arrow” or “WinKEY + ctrl + Right Arrow” keys to switch between virtual desktops.

  • Creating a new virtual desktop:

A new virtual desktop can be created by pressing “WinKEY + ctrl + D” keys together.
