A "master" deskop, combining all other desktops?

Postby davomyster » 03.07.2014 16:36:51

I'd love to have a virtual desktop that is a "master" desktop, containing all the windows of the other 3 virtual desktops. So if I have 3 virtual desktops, each of which have a Chrome window open, I'd like to be able to see those three chrome windows in my Master desktop. If I close them in the master desktop, they should close in the virtual desktop from which they came as well.

Is this possible? Thanks so much!

Try a desktop rule like this:

Thanks for the quick response! I think that's exactly what I'm looking for. I made a Desktop Rule exactly like the one you showed me, except I set the action to "Copy to Desktop 5". I then clicked "apply" and then "apply rules" from within the Desktop Rules window. That should trigger the rule and copy all the windows to Desktop 5, right? Desktop 5 is currently empty, despite the fact that I have several windows open in Desktops 1, 2, and 3.

Thanks again. This is a fantastic product.

Do newly opened windows get copied to Desktop 5? "Apply Rules" only affects windows on the current desktop.
