I like the taskbar, I leave two rows. It still gets very cluttered. I don't like various solutions like restoring the QuickLaunch.
Also the window situation gets a little difficult.
Virtual Desktops were a big thing, some years ago, now they are more thought of in terms of multi-monitor.
And I noticed one mentioned the other day.
The description reminded me of GoScreen, the one I chose in 2006 and bought a license and they still have a yahoogroups forum.
Andrew Guranov, author. I chose it partly because it was more native to Windows functions, no weird hooks, quite stable.
The license is lifetime, still good for the latest release (WinSnap is another utility with an excellent lifetime license.)
Loaded it back, and it it seems quite good for my needs.
The primary desktop is browsers, email, chat skype.
I set up an auxiliary one for documents, PDFs, viewers, etc. (That was really cluttering the taskbar.)
One for utilities.
One for notes programs.
Stuff like that.
You are not limited, if I am in the primary and need Notezilla or Total Commander, I simply use the start menu.
Probably I can put a program in multiple virtuals. Lots could be checked out.
Note the good online documentation, how-to-guide.
FYI: Ok, it knocked away my wallpaper at first, took a minute to put it back.
It moved around icons, I put them back with DesktopOK. I'm not sure if that is an inherent problem.No mini-problems after the initial install
and some playing around. It might have had something to do with the
drag-and-drop capability you have with their set-up that starts on the left.
The longevity and ongoing support makes GoScreen a bit of a sleeper program. Maybe Dexpot and
some others are more sophisticated. GoScreen has some solid utility functions, it is rather a neat program.
