How To Open Files/Apps In Virtual Desktops On Mac

[Simple Steps To Create And Manage Multiple Desktops]

Virtual desktops are great tools for sorting clutter when you have multiple applications or files open at the same time. You can easily arrange your applications and files between multiple desktops while they run together in the background.

In Windows, you need special software to use this feature. But fortunately for Mac users, this feature comes preinstalled. If you want to use it on your Mac, you have to follow these steps:

  1. Open all the files and applications that you want to arrange.
  2. Press F3 or swipe upwards with three fingers to open the Mission Control.
  3. You will be able to see all the apps together.
  4. Mac creates a second desktop by default, located on the top.
  5. Drag any application/file upwards to the new desktop and leave it there.
  6. To create another virtual desktop, move your mouse to the top right corner, and click on the “+” sign.
  7. A new virtual desktop will be added to the top bar besides the rest.
  8. Select any desktop to access it and use the files open inside it.
  9. To move to another desktop, swipe left/right with three fingers.

With these easy steps, you will be able to open all sorts of files and applications in multiple desktops with ease.
