When I create a new desktop it has all the same crud on it that my original desktop has on it.
How do I create a new desktop that's empty, and use that as a new work area... like a new desktop?
The source of my confusion is that they're named "DESKTOPS", and given unique numbers, yet they completely fail to follow the ideas of their own metaphor:
Desktop 1 is exactly the same as Desktop 2, only it's got the possibility of having different app windows in it. That's not a new desktop. It's the same desktop.
