Organize your work with multiple virtual desktops using this handy application. AltDesk has a small but neatly designed and skinnable interface. This application is easy to use compared to similar programs. You can easily create and modify each virtual desktop's wallpaper and hotk eys. You can quickly drag applications from one desktop to another.

AltDesk's intuitive menu is easily altered to your preferred display method. With a few clicks you can display AltDesk's toolbar horizontally or vertically with varying degrees of transparency. You also can define the windows you want to appear on all your desktops using the Sticky Windows option. The Boss Key bonus feature instantly hides the virtual desktops with the press of a button. Any user overwhelmed with a display full of applications and folders can effectively organize with this easy-to-use virtual desktop creator.
