Do you know you can have Virtual Desktops (like in Linux) with PowerToys ?

This is a cool one!!!

If you have powertoys installed on Windows XP Its available for free at Microsoft website ( http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powertoys.asp ) . It is very easy to enable Microsoft Virtual Desktop Feature. Simply right click on the Start Panel Bar also called TaskBar, Click on Tool Bar and select Desktop manager. You would see a set of 5 icons placed on the right portion of the TAskBar. Click on number 1 to 4 to go to any of the desktops. Now you have have four different Active Desktops.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You may see a little degradation in performance but for desktop work it is negligible.

Yes !

After you install Power Toys, right click the taskbar, go to Toolbars, and select Desktop Manager. After it starts, you'll notice a little orange button on the taskbar, right click the orange button to configure the Desktop Manager! I'd turn OFF the animation between screens though...too much of a resource pig !

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
