A way to know if a desktop is being used or not

I would like to know if you can implement some way to know that I have an open window on any of the desktops without actually having to check each desktop manually or bringing up the switcher(Windows + Z) to see if there is something there.

Problem is that I may forget that I left windows open in a desktop and if I restart my machine, those windows would just close and I may lose unsaved information.

The mini-preview also only shows icons representing the current desktop that is open, but nothing on the other desktops. I would still need to check each one or go to the switcher to make sure nothing is open on any other desktops.

I have the "Show one tray icon per desktop" feature turned on. Would be nice if they would turn a different color or something similar whenever there is at least one window open in that desktop.
