Yes, there is.  There wasn't in earlier versions, and I'm not sure when it 
became possible, but you need Task Manager Settings.  To get it you need to 
right-click on an empty bit of the Task bar.  If you have already set to show 
only the applications in use on that desktop, you'll have an empty taskbar on 
another desktop, which makes it easy.  Alternatively, the keyboard shortcut 
listed for launching it is Alt+D, S but that doesn't seem to work here.  
Anyway, now you know what you are looking for I'm sure you'll find it.
