How To Use Windows 10 Task View (Virtual Desktop)

The simplest way to use task view inside of Windows 10 is to click the new task view icon that is located next to the new Cortana search box.

As you can see, it shows all of my open windows so that I can quickly navigate to a specific document or program. This is an extremely helpful feature for those times when you have a ton of windows open at once and you are looking for a certain program quickly.
