The interface improvements in Windows 10 look very promising. The Start Menu is back and I like the way the modern tiles have been incorporated into that interface. The ability to have virtual desktops also looks like a useful development. I would like to see more flexibility with this concept though. Here's a few examples of things I'd like to see:
1. The ability to have different backgrounds on each virtual desktop.
I'm not a fan of using photographs for desktop backgrounds as I like my PC to look uncluttered but the ability to have different coloured backgrounds for each virtual desktop would be very useful.
2. The ability to display Computer Name, IP address etc on the desktop
I've lost track of the number of times I've had to talk users through the process of providing me with this information. I know there are free tools to provide this functionality but it should be built into Windows.
3. The ability to name each virtual desktop and have that name appear on the background of that virtual desktop.
4. The ability to have an "Administrator" virtual desktop which can be called from within a user's logged-on session. This desktop could contain all the tools an administrator needs to do their job, troubleshoot the PC etc (of course you would be required to provide admin log-in details to use this virtual desktop).
5. The ability to add live tiles to the virtual desktop
Why can't we already do this in Windows 8.1? Why must live tiles be restricted to the Start Screen/Start Menu? For example, a virtual desktop setup to use half the screen space for the Outlook client, with live tiles showing weather status, calendar status etc on the remaining desktop space could be very useful.
Virtual desktops are a great addition to Windows, but the ability to individually configure them would make them an essential must-have in my opinion - a real selling point for Windows 10 and useful to both the corporate user and the home user.
