Leaked Windows 9 video shows multiple desktops at work

New, 103 comments

Glimpses of the next Windows have been coming out at a steady clip, but the latest is the clearest yet of the operating system's multiple desktops. German site WinFuture obtained a video showing off a build of the new feature and how users can expect to use it.

As seen in the video, the taskbar for this early build of Windows 9 includes an icon for creating and closing virtual desktops. New workspaces can be made on the fly, and each workspace and their open programs can be accessed from this icon. The interface is certainly reminiscent of what's already been available on OS X and even Linux for years, but it'll be a welcome feature for power users when the new OS finally debuts.
