Hi all,

I have a question about Spaces.

So by default when the Mac starts one is in Space 1 - the upper left hand side (i set it to have 4 space-blocks).

I start checking email (boss drops in!!) and now I move over to Space block 2 (upper right hand side) Wink

Now I want to open Firefox again in Space block #2. Now instead of opening a new window in block #2, the screen shifts to block #11 where FF was opened earlier!!

I tried setting up Spaces prefs by letting FF be opened in all the 4 space blocks, but that didnt help either. WHen I set FF to be opened in all 4 blocks then the FF window from block#2 moves to block #1 and i am back to square 1, oops! back to block 1

For now the workaround i am doing is that--open FF in block #1 and use Safari for block #2!!

So how do i get to open each application window in each of the 4 blocks?
Are there some settings that I am missing?

sorry if i have confused it all with so many blocks and spaces!!

thanks in advance

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
