Editors' Review

+
Though it lacks a wealth of features, this desktop manager tool offers a bare-bones approach to navigating virtual desktops. With no interface, Windows Desktop Manager Basic resides on the system tray. Four virtual desktops are offered, and you can move between them through the tray icon or hot keys. You'll need to mouse over the tray icon to know which virtual desktop you're currently logged on, but you'll be able to set wallpapers and run several applications on each virtual desktop. Unlike similar competitive apps in the market, you won't be able to create and add more desktops or personalize hot keys, although the help file boasts of these options. Windows Desktop Manager Basic is free, easy to use, and works decently as long as you don't expect in-depth features.

    "Free and if you don't mind spyware, you'll like this..."

    June 13, 2007   |   By -Frontlin_E[ph511]r-

    Version: Windows Desktop Manager Basic 1

    Pros

    Besides being free I didn't give it much of a chance because...

    Cons

    ...right after I installed it, a "More Popular Searches!" box kept popping up. If you don't mind spyware, go ahead and install this piece of junk.

    "Good but a little buggy."

    June 16, 2006   |   By syberwolff

    Version: Windows Desktop Manager Basic 1

    Pros

    Easy to use,

    Use after install,

    Good shortcuts.

    Cons

    No options for customization,

    Somewhat buggy: I'm running MSN and when I switch from 1 desktop to another it leaves the 'shadows' from the MSN boxes on the desktop, doesn't take away from functionality but its a bit annoying.
