While we are certain to see Virtual Desks arrive in Chrome OS 76, the feature will likely still be behind a flag for the time being. The bulk of the work is done and Virtual Desks are basically ready for user consumption, but there are tiny tweaks here and there that still need to be […]

I’m going to allow myself to get fully nerdy for just a moment as I admit to the world just how excited I am about Virtual Desks coming in Chrome OS 76 because of one small – but HUGELY significant – feature addition. If you’ve followed along since the first mention of Virtual Desks on […]
One of the features I’m most looking forward to becoming a part of the Stable Channel experience on Chromebooks with Chrome OS 76 is Virtual Desktops. While I love what they’ve done already with the feature, I’m hopeful that some trackpad-driven navigation (mainly switching between active desktops with a multi-finger gesture) will be in the […]
Sure, Virtual Desktops (or Desks) for Chrome OS aren’t currently a thing just yet, but we all know they are coming in Chrome OS 76 a mere 6 weeks from now. Though I’ve been waiting for this feature for what feels like an eternity, all the news surrounding this hotly-anticipated functionality up to this point […]
Virtual Desktops on Chromebooks have been a pretty quick feature development, honestly. They only began showing up in February of this year and we’re already awaiting their arrival in the Stable Channel build of Chrome OS 76 later in July.
If you are a regular visitor to Chrome Unboxed, you’ve undoubtedly read all about Virtual Desks and their imminent arrival on Chrome OS and Chromebooks everywhere. I’ll save the explanation and instead point you to one of our previous posts on what Virtual Desks are if you aren’t up to speed. The introduction of this […]
We’ve been tracking virtual desktops for Chrome OS for months now. Since the first chatter about the feature coming soon to the four sneak peek videos already shown off in the Chromium Bug Tracker, we know quite a bit about what it will look like and how it will all work once the feature arrives.

It was just last week we reported a new video being added to the ongoing bug tracker development of virtual desks on Chrome OS. Prior to that update, it had been months since we’d seen one of these juicy videos from the Chromium Bug Tracker regarding this much-anticipated new feature. For review, the virtual desktop […]
Virtual desktops – or virtual desks as they are being called during development – are a great help for anyone who needs an extra layer of productivity when stuck on a single screen. Think of it as virtual extended displays waiting just off screen for you to summon them up, filled with other workspace things […]
We reported on the imminent arrival of Virtual Desks for Chrome OS last week, but here’s the basic idea: just like MacOS, Windows, and most Linux Desktops, Chrome OS is getting ready to (finally) get virtual desktops. If you’ve been around here for any amount of time, you’ll know I’ve been waiting for this particular […]
One of the few features we have longed for on Chrome OS for as long as I can remember is the ability to have multiple desktops. While it may seem trivial to some, “virtual desktops” are an integral part of a lot of user’s workflow and seeing the Chromium team give them some attention is […]
I’ve long lamented the lack of virtual desktops (or virtual workspaces) on Chrome OS. After all, this concept is a reality on Mac OS, Linux and Windows. Sure, Microsoft just added the feature a couple years ago, but users had been clamoring for it for years up to that point.
