Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Organize your desktop and manage applications by creating several independent virtual desktops. Chimera Virtual Desktop starts off nicely with a wizard to help you with setup, and offers a well-designed interface that's accessible via the system tray. You'll be able to add up to nine virtual desktops, and the program offers several ways to move between them, including a tabbed toolbar, hot keys, and through the menu. You'll also be able to set wallpaper and specify screen resolution for each desktop. The system-tray icon indicates which desktop you're currently using, or you can opt to add a semitransparent number to the upper right-hand corner of the desktop. Chimera doesn't slow down your computer or interrupt other programs running on other desktops. The only downside is the 14-day trial limitation, but any user looking for a comprehensive, easy-to-use desktop organizer will appreciate this feature-rich program.
