Do you need more monitors or more monitor real estate?

If you are using Windows 10 here is a tip that makes it easier to increase you monitor real estate without buying more monitors.  Windows 10 has the ability to have several different desktop on the same computer and switch quickly between them.

I have posted a link to describe how to set it up and use it.  For example.  Maybe you want one desktop for SmartSDR and a second desktop for your logging program and a third desktop for your digital program and maybe even a fourth desktop for you equipment control and monitoring programs.  You can set it up for the way you prefer to operate.

It is also very helpful when operating remotely on a laptop.  Or when you just want to view something full screen but still be able to see other programs without constantly having to minimize programs.

There are certainly some improvement Microsoft could make in future releases like having the ability to save the desktop layouts and recall them all with one command.
