Is one Windows desktop not enough? Check out the easy-to-use and truly helpful GoScreen, which lets you create virtual desktops by simply dragging and dropping windows. Once you've set up your desktops, you can switch among them with configurable hot keys, mouse movements, the docking panel, or tray icons. The program features the ability to set "sticky" windows for frequently used apps you want to appear on all desktops. Even with 40 desktops running, the program consumed only about 5MB of system memory--impressive performance, and much improved from earlier versions. Our only usability quibble is while GoScreen doesn't require installation, some users might still prefer a self-unpacking setup program. That tiny objection shouldn't deter serious multitaskers, who will find this $28 desktop manager both effective and economical.

Developer's Description

As monitor sizes, available RAM and operating system innovations all increase, it is likely that you are going to have more and more applications open on your desktop at the same time. GoScreen makes it possible to organize them the same way you organize files on hard disk - by placing application windows into different desktop folders, or screen pages. This way you could arrange windows by task thus cleaning the desktop. Switching between tasks would mean switching between different desktops.

GoScreen creates up to 80 virtual desktops (screen pages) on your single physical one. Only one screen page is visible at a time. When an application is started, it is placed on the current - "active" screen page. When you then go to another page, the application is left on the page where it was started - you can always find it there. It is possible to move applications between desktops, define application management rules, change attributes of each desktop separately, and so on.

Organize your work by creating multiple workspaces. Run each application, or group of applications on a separate screen. Never minimize any of the applications, never close any of them. When you switch screen pages, all running Windows programs just disappear from the screen and from the taskbar, but they are right there waiting when you switch back.
