Running virtual desktops (like Spaces on Mac OS) on Windows 7

Running virtual desktops (like Spaces on Mac OS) on Windows 7

I make much use of Ctrl-arrows to new virtual desktops on my MacBook to get more real estate, organize like-applications and windows, and help focus on a task at a time.

"Windows 10 now does that through the ""virtual desktop"" features.
You can see the virtual desktops via holding [Windows]+[Tab], and add a virtual desktop via clicking on ""Add desktop"" from there.
Then, you can move from a virtual desktop to another with the [Windows]+[Control]+[Right or Left arrow].
One thing that prevents me from using it as I would on a Linux or a Mac is that, on a multi-monitor set-up, switching virtual desktops will switch the desktop on all the monitors at the same time.
Windows 7 being no longer supported by Microsoft, I would suppose that you have moved to Windows 10."
