3D Multiple Desktop Switcher for Windows

September 24, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

It all began the day when i first tried my hand on Linux and i was introduced to the feature known as ” Linux Virtual Desktops”. I was really amazed by it. It was just awesome being able to switch between multiple screens at the same time, hiding what you are doing immediately,etc. Although i have left linux behind since long and switched to windows, it occurred to me that it would be fun to have the same virtual desktops feature in windows. So i just Googled some links and Voila!!! here we are with the way….. 🙂

The good thing about using multiple virtual desktops is that you can organize your running applications better by reading email on one, browsing the web on another, do some secret work on the third, etc. By googling, i found that the two tools most preferred by people are as below. Just give them a try.

1. Sysinternals Desktops

The really good point about this is that it is very small in size and takes very little memory usage. After you configure hotkeys for switching desktops, you can create and switch desktops either by clicking on the tray icon to open a desktop preview and switching window, or by using the hotkeys.

2. DeskHedron

DeskHedron is another attempt at enlarging cramped desktop real estate by giving you up to nine depsktops you can rotate between.

This is just an EXE file, so no need to install it. This gives it the advantage of being small and quick to use, but also partly explains why it’s so simple. Double clicking the .EXE file will plant a while rectangle in the system tray, and when clicked, your desktop will shrink back, and using the cursor keys or mouse wheel you can rotate to a new clean desktop.(Awesome 3D Effects btw!!!)

Although DeskHedron takes very little memory usage, but it runs an additional explorer.exe whenever you add another virtual desktop. Even removing the extra virtual desktop and terminating DeskHedron doesn’t seemed to release the running explorer.exe.
