How do you create and manage different desktop spaces using Mission Control on a MacBook?

To create and manage different desktop spaces using Mission Control on a MacBook, start by accessing Mission Control, which can be done by swiping up with three or four fingers on the trackpad or by pressing the Mission Control key (usually F3) on the keyboard. Once in Mission Control, locate the top-right corner of the screen where you’ll see a ‘+’ symbol representing the option to add a new desktop space. Click the ‘+’ icon to create additional spaces.

After creating multiple desktop spaces, customize them with different wallpapers by entering each space individually. To do this, swipe or click to navigate to the desired desktop space. Once in the space, open System Preferences and select “Desktop & Screen Saver.” From here, you can add wallpaper images by clicking the ‘+’ button and selecting the folder containing the images you wish to use as wallpapers for that specific space. Choose an image from the folder to set it as the desktop wallpaper for that particular desktop space.

This process allows you to have separate wallpapers for each desktop space, providing a distinct visual backdrop for each workspace. By organizing and managing your wallpaper images in specific folders or photo albums, you can easily assign different wallpapers to different desktop spaces, enhancing your productivity and customization options across the entire screen without needing to rely on a single default wallpaper for the entire MacBook.
