Google’s Linux-Based Chrome OS Now Officially Supports Virtual Workspaces

With the upcoming Chrome OS 78 release, the Linux-powered Chromebook operating system will finally bring support for virtual desktops. A multitask feature, virtual workspaces has been around for years on Linux, Mac, and Windows operating systems, helping users better organize their workspaces and be more productive, but Chrome OS is just getting Virtual Desks now. Virtual Desks will be available as part of the upcoming Chrome OS 78 release, so once you install it, you will be able to activate virtual workspaces by opening Overview and tapping on the New Desk button in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Once they’re enable, you’ll be able to drag windows between virtual desktops and easily switch between virtual workspaces.
