I have always loved linux desktop because we can create and manage so many desktops at a time. It helps alot to organize ourselves. For example, I do multiple types of works when I’m on my work PC. I have blogging stuff open, I have office documents open, I have internet surfing and research stuff open and many more. What I want to do it separate every type of work in a different desktop so that my task bar is not cluttered and I am well organized and my work speed is efficient. Using multiple desktops along with a Vmware client can increase productivity while reducing the hassle of working with full screen virtual applications.
I have used so many multiple desktop managers but the problem with most of them is that either they are not user friendly or they are too heavy on system resources. I was going through sysinternals site where Microsoft utilities are given and I found this tiny little utility called Desktops. It’s about 62 KB and it does my job perfectly. It takes almost no resources and I can configure the shortcut by which I can switch desktops.
Here is it’s configuration screen:
And here is how it shows the desktops when we click on it’s icon on the status bar.
