Microsoft Virtual Desktop – From the Power Toys Collection

Screenshot of my machine running the Virtual Desktop Manager Power Toy for Windows XP.

So, I’m sitting in a meeting on Monday and I subtly glance over at Tom the Architects computer and I see him flipping through desktops like he was on a Linux box. This bothers me. This is something I’ve wanted on my Windows machine for a while — so this sticks in my head.

It winds up he is running The Virtual Desktop Manager, one of the programs from the Microsoft Powertoys for XP. A screenshot is included above.

This is a feature that has been missing in Windows forever, that I really got used to having on Linux. I’m glad to see it’s been addressed. You can download the Virtual Desktop Manager from the link above.
