Thank you Aidan. I have set about re-creating the desktops I had,
but giving each one an Activity name. Where the associated icons
appear, I have yet to discover! Also, bit of a nusiance not to be
able to switch between them with the mouse wheel. I have not yet
investigated whether more than one desktop per Activity is allowed,
if it is, that could potentially be useful.

Only styles, not actual colours, as far as I can find.

I have found some things to try from a new search of the internet.
