People who like to multitask and have several applications opened at the same time, can experience that the standard Windows desktop and taskbar gets too over crowded. A solution to this problem is to create several virtual desktops, and then switch between the desktops depending on the task at hand.
- Virtual Dimension - Create several virtual desktops in Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000 and XP.
- VirtuaWin - Virtual Desktop Manager for Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000 and XP.
- Yod'm 3D (Freeware Mirror) - Yet anOther Desktop Manager 3D for Windows XP and Vista (Was freeware but now taken over by Otaku Software and called Desk Space).
- Vista/XP Virtual Desktop Manager - Uses the new Vista DWM interface to create multiple desktops (Also supports Windows XP).
- Desktops 1.0 - Creates virtual desktops by using the Windows Desktop object, with a separate Explorer instance for each desktop. This means the windows and shown / hidden correctly when switching between desktops, but cannot be moved between desktops and the tray icons will be difference on each desktop.
