Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Tricky to manage, this free utility offers a vast array of options to create an endless number of virtual desktops. Virtual Desktop Toolbox's interface is flooded with options. After weeding through the options to create your desktops, each independent desktop will have its own display settings and wallpaper. Switching among virtual desktops is easy using the system tray icon or with customizable hot keys. A host of other configurable options such as managing icons, windows, and time tracking make the program a little harder than most virtual desktop programs we've seen. Windows are conveniently movable among desktops using the drag-and-drop feature, but only if the desktop was initially set up as virtual. This application comes with considerable help to learn its ins and outs, including an online user's guide, a lengthy creation wizard, and a folder full of question-answering Word files, although going through all of that can be a headache in itself. Though it takes a considerable amount of time to become acquainted with its features, this application is a feasible pick for creating multiple desktops.
