I remember long ago (maybe Windows 98) in which a user with lots of icons on his home screen could have 2 or more home screens---and he could slide the first home screen to the left and see his second one.

I set my home screen to look like it did in Windows 7 because I prefer it.

I confess to having lots of icons (set to "small" size). More than will fit on the screen.

Is there any way to have multiple home screens; so I can just page from one to another?

(Yeah, I know how to sort the icons on the home screen by type, or date, or whatever. But I want to be able to see them all.)

Currently, I end up opening Explorer and looking at the list of the links on the desktop, but that is a pain.

I think it depends on what version of windows you have. A google search gives a lot of links for Win 10.
What are u running.

  1. On the taskbar, select Task view > New desktop .
  2. Open the apps you want to use on that desktop.
  3. To switch between desktops, select Task view again.
I dunno if that's what you are looking for or not?

Sounds to me that you want links to websites on your desktop, that's what 'favorites' are for.
If it's to programs you can always put small icons on your desktop.
For documents follow Moonrivers advice above.

Thanks everybody. I will give those ideas a try.

I am running Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) system on this laptop.

(I still run Windows 7 on another laptop and on a desktop because I still like it.)
