Deskwin is a virtual Desktop Manager. Instead of having one desktop on which all windows are shown, you can now have multiple ones, each with its own set of windows. You can switch Between desktop by clicking on a desktop in the deskwin window or using a HotKey. Unlike other virtual desktop managers, deskwin will also remove the invisible windows from Windows鈥?taskbar.
Features Docking When you move the deskwin window close enough to the edges of the screen it will automatically Dock itself. You can configure whether or not deskwin should dock.
Auto hiding You can configure deskwin to automatically hide itself except for a small area. Autohiding will only occur when the deskwin is docked and not used for a while (typically a few seconds). Deskwin will then move itself out of the screen, except for a small area. When you move the mouse over the area that is still visible, deskwin will move itself to a fully visible position.
Hotkeys Hotkeys allow for quick desktop switching. You can assign hotkeys per desktop and hotkeys for navigating to the next and previous desktop. In addition there is a hotkey to hide the explorer window. The latter can be useful when you run an X Server on your windows 9x/NT machine.
Moving windows to a different desktop Simply click a small window in one of the deskwin desktop windows and drag it to a new desktop. When dragging desktops around in the small deskwin window (either on the current desktop or to others) the default behaviour is to set the window to the position you dragged it to; if you want to retain the window's original position, hold the CTRL key when you release the left mouse button.
Closing down deskwin When you close down the deskwin application, it will move all the windows to the first desktop.
Restore after crash When deskwin is restarted after a crash, it will make all windows that were hidden during the previous session visible again.
