    Hello,

    Im wanting to start using spaces.
    When i click the '+' symbol to create another space, all the times on my desktop are duplicated over onto thats second space, an third etc.

    So i went into preferences, mission control, and toggled the 'displays have separate spaces' checkbox ...

    but its not doing what i want lol ...

    Im wanting to create a separate space, but without duplicating the first one, is this possible ?

    Many thanks in advance

    Are you talking about the desktop icons/files? If so, that's not the intent of Spaces. Spaces is intended as a way to organize open applications, not a way to organize desktop files.

    I'm not sure you've done something wrong, I'm fairly certain Spaces is working as intended.

    It is working as intended. I would be interested in having a separate desktop folder for each space too!
