Peach app for Windows 10 offers Virtual Desktops on steroids

Peach is a desktop application for Windows 10 that helps you organize your Windows estate by extending the functionality of the built-in Virtual Desktops feature.

Multiple desktops help in keeping unrelated, ongoing projects organized, or for quickly hiding from the boss the YouTube videos you’re watching at work. It helps having desktops beyond the limitations of a physical display and is a powerful way to organize and quickly access groups of windows.

The Peach app enables moving between contexts intuitive and fast, by setting up quick shortcuts that work regardless of what application you’re running. The convenient shortcuts make moving windows around via the keyboard way faster. Each Virtual Desktop in Peach gets assigned a number on your keyboard so that you can switch desktops to exactly where you want to be, without having to use a mouse. The app allows you to toggle between desktops fast quickly via the Toggle Desktops shortcut.

You can also pin specific windows to your screen, so you can keep important, regularly accessed apps (like Twitter or OneNote) on every desktop and above all other windows.

You can read more about Peach and download the app from www.peachapp.net. At $10, it’s a tad expensive, but if you are a Virtual Desktops power user, you’d like the extra functionality it brings to the experience.
