    anyone using this ---
    Virtual Desktop Manager
    Manage up to four desktops from the Windows taskbar with this PowerToy.

    looks like a cool way to manage multi desktops

    Here's the link that takes you to the download page and has some other goodies. LINK Here.
    TweakUI and Image Resizer are both 'must-haves'.

    VDM didn't really want to work for me. All four desktops came out the same with the exception of having different backgrounds. All the icons (to include their locations) were the same for me even when switching between desktops. In essence, it worked as a background changer.....

      Yes, thats the way it works. However, open a program on desktop 3, and then switch desktops, it will be on only one.

              What would be cool is if you had one desktop running on one display and the other on a seperate display. This way multiple monitors in your car would actually be more usefull. GPS in the front and Videos in the back. This is currently what I am working on.
              You can still have something if you have nothing

                I too would like that in the future.
