Editors' Review

Multitasking has become a way of life for many people, and doing it on the computer can be frustrating if you have a lot of different programs open and not enough screen space to accommodate all of them. That's where virtual desktops come in. Such programs can create multiple versions of your desktop where you can run different programs, yet you can easily switch between them. VirtuaWin is a full-featured program that lets users create up to 20 different, highly customizable virtual desktops. It works well, but it might not be the best choice for the novice user.

The program's interface is plain; the program appears as an icon on the system tray, and right-clicking it provides access to several navigation options, as well as the Setup menu. This is where users configure each desktop's characteristics, as well as mouse behavior, hot keys, and module lists. The program has a ton of customizations for navigation, organization, and various workarounds. We think that users who are experienced with virtual desktops will be quite pleased with VirtuaWin, but neophytes are going to have to be persistent if they want to master this program. The Help file is obviously written with an assumption that the user already more or less knows how everything works and just needs a few hints about the specifics. Our use of the program was equal parts following directions and guessing, and we wished that we'd had more guidance as to how to make the most of this program.
