DeskSpace promises to help users manage their cluttered desktops by providing multiple 3D desktops to toggle through. While this sounds like a promising development, DeskSpace is one headache after another.

The program appears as an icon in the tray. A user's first instinct is to double click on a program to start it. However, here such a move takes you to a menu to help set up desktop hot keys. There are other options offering ways to customize DeskSpace. Left clicking and right clicking the tray icon presents a dropdown menu of other options. At no point did we see a 3D version of our desktop.

Further studying and a visit to the Help menu showed us how to create hot keys that supposedly bring the new desktop to the foreground. Nothing we did could make DeskSpace perform its duties.

This 14-day trial professes to offer a unique product that could help many people, but by burying it behind endless menus and shortcut keys, it winds up just frustrating. We do not recommend this download for anyone.
