It only supports a limited number of virtual desktops, but WiseDesktop is easy to use and performs well. You can create up to four virtual desktops, and its well-designed main control panel displays all running programs for each virtual desktop in a tree view. Intuitive buttons let you move programs from one desktop to another and you can add or remove applications from any desktop. One notable feature allows you to run an application on all the virtual desktops. Quickly switch from one desktop to another through its control panel, from the system tray, or with hot keys. The system-tray icon helpfully displays the number of the current desktop being displayed according to its creation order. The four desktop limit is disappointing, and the program only offers a 15-day trial. Unless you need more screens, WiseDesktop's flexible features will be a definite asset in desktop management.
