    Virtual Desktops for W8 like old sysinternals app for XP


    Hi there
    Is there any Virtual desktop software out there for W8 -- the old sysinternals program on XP / W2k3 server was great (4 Virtual desktops). Screenshot enc running on W2K3 server Virtual Machine

    Desktops

    Linux users have had this type of software for YEARS.

    Note --NOT VIRTUAL MACHINES - but VIRTUAL DESKTOPS - so when you say switch to DESKTOP 2 it has it's own background, applications and sets of Windows. With a 16 GB powerful machine I could definitely use this type of software.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Just seen a NEW version is available that works on W8 -- haven't tried it on W8.1 yet though.

Hi all Not sure how difficult it would be but instead if every installed app instead of having its own tile on the main Start plus all its submenus as separate tiles too - were to arrange the tiles by learning something from a Desktop OS in using Virtual Desktops. If I dare say it on a Win...
