No matter what OS you use, virtual desktops, workspaces, and activities allow us to better separate and group our activities more logically together. If you dislike clutter, and want better productivity and organisation, then this video is worth watching if you have not yet explored this before.

Although this video focuses on general Linux and KDE users, I do cover why someone would want to use virtual desktops or workspaces. As these features exist too on Windows and macOS, this may be of interest to those users, and also to compare with how Linux does it.

This is not a step-by-step how-to-do-it video, as my videos focus more around an overview of why you may want to use something, and what it can do for you. If you like the concept of virtual workspaces, there are plenty of how-to videos to get started.

I specifically delve into the differences, too, between virtual desktops/workspaces and KDE activities.
