Win10 Virtual Desktops and DisplayFusion integration

Is there any plans for increased integration between Win10 Virtual Desktops and DisplayFusion? Things like automatically move certain applications/windows to certain desktops based on application or title. Or have different backgrounds for each monitor on each vDesktop. Or even give a border or top/bottom/taskbar change of color or some indicator to show which vDesktop you're on. Or hotkeys to move them to previous/next/n vDesktop.

This is high on our list for DisplayFusion 10. We've been working hard behind the scenes to sort out some issues around virtual desktops so it should be ready for prime time in DisplayFusion 10.

Oh cool! Ok, fair enough, I'll wait patiently. Or try to anyway. At least it's in the pipeline so that's good! Hopefully DF10 will be along Soon™.

Not to bring up a dead thread or anything but I am really hopeful for this feature as well. Having DF compatible with Win10 Virtual desktops has become a must for me.

Thanks in advance!

Haven't seen anything related to DisplayFusion 10, so sadly sounds like this feature will be a while in coming.

Hello,

This is still on our list to add in for v10, but there still are some technical issues we need to look into, so we have no promises

Thanks!

Any news on this?
When switching desktops, only the main screen works. on the other screens my windows are the same on all virtual desktops.

Hopefully you'll continue to work on it, and not abandon Win10 users for this sort of feature in favor of only focusing on Win11.

Windows 11 user here and also looking for this feature! When Windows is handling wallpapers, each virtual desktop can have its own, however if DF is running things we only get 1 for all virtual desktops.

Even in Windows 11, virtual desktops don't have nearly the features as they've had for years on Linux. There is no real persistence across reboots, and desktops cannot have hot keys attached.

And while there used to be robust virtual desktop utilities for Windows, all have fallen out of development. None have been updated for Windows 10, and most aren't even usable with Windows 10. The vertible Dexpot still functions... somewhat, but hasn't been updated in over half a decade.

Currently, there is a nothing on the market addressing Display Fusion-like customization of Windows virtual desktops, and Microsoft doesn't seem likely to address it either.

Any update? This has been "high on (your) list" for almost 2 years. AFAICT, Microsoft started to include some related functionality in Win 10 in the dev build 21337 time frame, but it doesn't look like it made it into 21H2.

Agree, an update would be great.

Have been wanting to switch from Actual Multiple Monitors to Display Fusion for some time. The lack of virtual desktop support keeps me from doing so.

Have just tried 10beta12, and just as this poster said some time back, the primary monitor functions properly, but all secondary monitors are no longer part of "virtual desktops". Apps on secondary monitors appear on all Windows Virtual Desktops.

Would be nice to hear that this is on the dev board for 10 launch...

Indeed this is still on our list to look into, but we have no updates yet.

Thanks!

Just to add my vote. I find that I have a choice to use Display Fusion or Virtual Desktops. Virtual Desktops are a must so bye-bye Display Fusion. When is v10 coming out

DisplayFusion works OK with Virtual Desktops, it just doesn't necessarily have the potential that it could to make it better to visually identify exactly which one I'm on, without having to try and switch to figure it out.

Upvote here, I'm with Drizzt321, it would be great to have virtual desktop functions like "Move app to another / next / prev desktop" so you can assign keys or titlebar buttons. I like to have all my GUI interactions in one system, and DF is the best.
