Enable Virtual Desktop includes: multiple monitor support, customizable desktop size, hotkey desktop switching, mouse and window selectors, fully customizable appearance. Customise the mini-window via semi-transparent display, titlebar control, both Taskbar and SysTray icons, Always on top and Autohide facilities, contents mode (exact miniature replica of your desktop), desktop themes and global hotkeys.
Here is what is still good: 1. Supports multiple monitors. 2. Plenty of configuration options. 3. Mostly it works and does not cause any system crashes.
1. Screen saver causes open windows to collect to current window. 2. Most Java apps freeze-up when move to window on another display. 3. Scarce releases & you get no support. 4. Some apps have child windows open in other desktop.
This used to be the best virtual window manager that I could find but seems to have been neglected for the past several years.
I have used the enable virtual desktop manager for over 10 years but now am forced to switch to another desktop manager. I have put up with screens all collecting to one screen when screen saver came on but having Java apps freeze up and require restarting was too much. I submitted both problems to the company along with all the information they want included but never heard anything back. The FAQs and tips did not mention either problem. Their FAQ also mentions a problem with Vista and says "We are working on fixing this." Vista has been released since Jan 2007 so its not likely they are really working on a fix.
I've had the same experience. I tired a bunch of virtual desktop managers for windows 10 years ago when I was moving from working on Sun workstations and needed the same functionality. At the time, this was the best thing out there, and I was happy to pay for it. However, like you said, there are some annoying bugs, and new releases have been nearly nonexistent. The worst problem for me (under XP) is that the process will occasionally start using up most of the available CPU. The company's web site (I've always been under the impression it's a single guy) now doesn't list this as a product at all, so it looks like it's been abandoned. Looking for a better alternative now...
Version 3.0.1 includes options for desk and systray icon numbering; adds support for multiple monitors, save and restore configurations including window rules, additional hotkey and window rule functionality.
