Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This application may not impress professionals due to its simple interface, but you'll be satisfied by the additional virtual desktops. Virtual Desk has a simple but skinnable interface. The number of desktops is set by the skin and limited by installed memory. If you're working with many applications and documents, this tool can categorize them by desktop and allows you to switch from one working desktop to another with just a press of a hot key or mouse click. You also can set every desktop with its own background and screensavers to help you to quickly recognize where you're working. The Sticky feature declares a particular application to appear in every desktop. Though novices will find this application easy to set up and use, intermediate users who wish to become power users will be frustrated by a weak help file. The Flash-based demonstration file is not at all helpful. Novices to advanced users who need more desktop space will find this application a great help.
