Ubuntu – have different desktop folders in each workspace


Is there any way that I can have different desktop folders in each workspace?

e.g. workspace1 has a desktop with a folder named test1, while the desktop folder in workspace2 has a different folder named randomfolder.

Right now if I change something in one workspace desktop all the workspaces will change.

Every workspace contains the same desktop, the same panels, and the same menus of your operating system. It's like cropping your office desk in pieces; each piece is the same as the other and you can run different procedures at each.

However everything you change at each workspace will remain untouched and not effect the other workspaces. For instance if I open Terminal at the 1st workspace it will remain as I left it when I changed workspace.
