Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Though it offers multiple ways to manage windows, ManageDesk isn't always stable. The program initially offers four virtual desktops, accessible by number in the system tray, and you can add up to nine. Settings and commands are offered on a right-click menu.

Navigating between desktops is easy, and lets you keep a program or site accessible but out of the way. The program's settings offer a Hotkeys tool and other options to further manage windows, and these worked nicely as well. Unfortunately, using the program's right-click menu caused problems. While the command to hide all windows worked, the restore option didn't, and items weren't listed in Windows' Task Manager.

Trying to figure out how these options worked sent us to the Help file, but the program consistently locked up and closed down when trying to access it. Though the concept is nice, intermediate users and above will want a more consistent program to manage their desktops.

Developer's Description

If your computer desktop getting overcrowded or you are having difficulty quickly accessing software applications, then it's time for you to consider trying virtual desktop software. ManageDesk includes powerful tools for increasing your productivity: independent applications and windows running on different desktops, password protection to protect your work, independent icons, folders and files on each desktop, easy-to-use hotkeys, a superior memory manager, computers process viewer and dll viewer, automatic application launching on the selected desktop.

Each virtual desktop is a distinct working environment. The taskbar shows only the applications opened on the current desktop, greatly reducing the clutter. Version 2.46.11 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
