How to set Different Backgrounds & Desktop icons Between Desktops in Windows 11

Copper Contributor



I am trying to set my PC up so that it is easier to transition between work and personal activities. I read in several places online that this was doable via the Windows 11 task view tool (creating multiple desktops).

I have been able to set up different desktops with different apps running in each, but I cannot find a way to differentiate either the desktop backgrounds or the desktop shortcuts. Help appreciated.

Press the Windows key + Tab to open Task View. Click the "+" icon at the top to create a new desktop. Repeat this process to create as many desktops as you need.
