Virtual desktops are a feature that some users often overlook to consider having several workspaces available is unnecessary, but after trying the benefits, after a while it becomes indispensable.
In this post we will see how to add and remove virtual desktops in KDE, a desktop environment with many options waiting to be configured by users. Increase or decrease the amount of virtual desktops in KDE it is not at all difficult, on the contrary, we only need to set the number of virtual desktops we want to have in the configuration module corresponding.
To open it we run “virtual desktops” from KRunner (Alt + F2).
The following window will open:
The fields we can configure speak for themselves. In the option Number of desktops we set the number of virtual desktops we want to have at our disposal; a Number of rows we set the number of rows in which desktops will be displayed; the option Different graphics components for each desktop allows us to have, or not, different plasmoids in each work area.
Below, in the section Desktop names, We can set custom names for each of our virtual desktops.
Then there is the tab exchange:
On the tab exchange we can change, worth the redundancy, the form of navigation – cyclical or not – and the animation when switching from one desktop to another. There is also a section to establish keyboard shortcuts for each desktop and switching between them, plus an option to activate the information on the screen.
Once we have configured everything according to our needs, we simply need to accept the changes made, which will take effect immediately.
