From Andrei Gourianov:
As monitor sizes, available RAM and operating system innovations all increase, it is likely that you are going to have more and more applications open on your desktop at the same time. GoScreen makes it possible to organize them the same way you organize files on hard disk - by placing application windows into different desktop folders, or screen pages. This way you could arrange windows by task thus cleaning the desktop. Switching between tasks would mean switching between different desktops. GoScreen creates up to 80 virtual desktops (screen pages) on your single physical one. Only one screen page is visible at a time. When an application is started, it is placed on the current - "active" screen page. When you then go to another page, the application is left on the page where it was started - you can always find it there. It is possible to move applications between desktops, define application management rules, change attributes of each desktop separately, and so on. Organize your work by creating multiple workspaces. Run each application, or group of applications on a separate screen. Never minimize any of the applications, never close any of them. When you switch screen pages, all running Windows programs just disappear from the screen and from the taskbar, but they are right there waiting when you switch back.
What's new in this version: Version 126.96.36.1993 adds new layout command - Tile; possibility to resize Launchpad items

Some easy tweaks
Many inscrutable tweaks
Probably could destabilize system if you don't know what you're doing.
MULTIPLE ADWARE/ADDON apps during installation. go SLOWLY and read carefully. This is why AVG did not want to let me run it. I still trust CNET enough to give it a go.
To get the most out of this, you would need to be a programmer or script editor of some kind. There are a few easy tweaks, but to do anything more complex, you have to understand a lot of "OS-speak," e.g. ".CM13RCMLayoutEvent(.CM13RCMLayoutEvent)." What is that?This was intended for Right click enhancer. Irrelevant.
There are also Registry items listed that would be dangerous to play with.
I find it marginally useful.

I give goScreen 4 stars. Very useful. The only issues are the terms used (control bar, Window List, Launch Pad, Page Surf...) are not defined, and it takes a lot of trial and error to decode them to get what you want. There are also check marks next to menu items that can't seem to be unchecked. I finally got it going the way I like it, but I think I could do more if it was a more understandable UI. There was some weird transparent "bar" across the top of my secondary physical screen set to click-through that obfuscated desktop icons. It took a lot of guessing to get rid of it; I still don't know what it was or how I did it.
The "start with Windows" option set two instances going; one in all users, one in current user. I removed both and put the app into the regular startup folder-no issues now.
I like having the apps button window near my start button and the four virtual desktop buttons in the notification area.
"Very useful. The best VWM I've found for Windows."

It has quite a number of features that become more important to you after using it for awhile. It is flexible enough to adapt to your style of using Virtual Window Managers. I like having my VWM as a auto-hide sidebar on the right, so it does not interfere with my use of the Windows Task bar at the bottom. It has a lot of cutesy window transitions, but I just use the quickest switcher mode it has because I found this distracting.
Not a true VWM in that you cannot incrementally scroll through the larger window space in less than discrete full-window switches. Sometimes gets into contention with other programs that want to force the window map to the background. Crashes occasionally, but this is not often (once every few weeks) and it is no big deal.
It is quite useful and blends in with the OS after getting used to it. Must-have.
