Virtual Desktop Toolbox - maximum control over multiple desktops

recommended by A.K., Oct 2006, permalink


Every since I installed the HaloScan commenting on my articles, I've looked forward to seeing what you folks will write in as comments. Some of these comments go so far as to be considered a review all in their own right. Below, you can see one from A.K. He wrote this in reply to my review of DoubleDesktop, which allows you to add a virtual desktop to your PC.


In addition to DoubleDesktop, and the program below, Microsoft also has a virtual desktop PowerToy that is freeware.

Yes, it really is feature-laden. So, it is definitely not for everyone. I actually have fun finding ways of using its many features (though I don't use all of them), and end up getting more organized in the process.


Both the "Pro" and "Home" versions are free registerware. The registration is kind of complicated (probably to encourage well-deserved donations). The download from the website is the evaluation version. This page (http://www.r2d2-software.com/VDT/Tutorial/Default/Page6-3.htm ) shows where you must send an email for them to send you the PASSWORD to unlock the evaluation version. Then, you must download a separate "REGISTRATION PROGRAM" from this page (http://www.r2d2-software.com/VDT/Tutorial/Default/Unlock.htm). Running this registration program and entering the emailed password made Virtual Desktop Toolbox become the "Pro" version for me (as there was no choice at any time to be made between "Home" and "Pro").


Sorry, the author's website has vanished. You may still be able to get this program at Download dot com.
