I never looked into using Virtual Desktops until I started spending more and more time throughout the week on a laptop.
Some keyboard shortcuts make the process much faster.
Create new virtual desktop
Windows Key + CTRL + D
Switch between virtual desktops
Windows Key + CTRL + Left or Right (arrow key)
Close current desktop
Windows Key + CTRL + F4
