Do you guys use Windows' virtual desktops? I knew they existed before but only started using them today. Pretty handy to have all your stuff from project A on desktop 1 and all you other stuff on desktop 2.
Windows+Tab opens all your open windows and then at the bottom you see your virtual desktops. You can create a new one there or use Windows+Control+D
You can switch through them with Windows+Control+Left and Windows+Control+Right (they don't loop unfortunately)

Using four screens for work, which is enough screen estate for me.
I didn't like the virtual desktops for some reason..
4 screens? Are some pure monitoring?

Was looking at a NAS today to buy once we move into the apartment.

I always thought a NAS with RAID didn't need an additional backup but apparently I was wrong: NAS arrays do fail sometimes.
Also these days you can never be sure some ransomware ends up on your PC and encrypts all drives.. including the network ones (your precious NAS).

So yeah if you want to be 100% sure of not losing data I guess you need a NAS (even without RAID is fine imo) and an additional backup drive of like 10gb that you use every week. And that's exactly what I'm gonna do once we need to move.
