2nd monitor - virtual desktops

... but I have a second question concerning operation of a 2nd monitor.

Have at the moment two virtual desktops on my monitor #1.

Monitor #2, when connected, also shows two virtual desktops.

Is that a must, or can monitor #1 have 2 virtual desktops and #2 only have 1 virtual desktop?

Re: 2nd monitor - virtual desktops

Also, scrolling the mouse wheel on monitor #1 changes the virtual desktop on both monitors.

Can that be adjusted, so only the virtual desktop changes on monitor #1 only?

Unfortunately no. However, you can "pin" windows to the second monitor so they display on all workspaces giving the illusion that it's not changing.

Re: 2nd monitor - virtual desktops

Thank you for your reply, ToZ.

So, using different virtual desktops AND two monitors really does not make sense....

No possibility to say "monitor #1 virtual desktops active, monitor #2 virtual desktops NOT active".

But I'll try your proposal, have same background on 2nd monitor and pin "windows" and have a look.
