DeskSpace is probably the best choice in this particular category, as it provides up to six desktops that can be easily controlled using a few keyboard shortcuts.
Control multiple desktops with the aid of a cube
DeskSpace was built for multiple purposes, amongst which the most important ones are to offer you an effortless way to expand your desktop space and to avoid and eliminate desktop clutter.
With this tool, you can work with multiple desktops and switch between them for more productivity. It does so by letting you navigate a desktop cube, whose faces are practically the six desktops you are currently handling.
Unobtrusive running mode
There is no interface to the program, managing it can only be done from the system tray menu, but this does not bring major inconveniences. From here, you can change the way the application works, including wallpapers and names for each of the virtual desktops, keyboard shortcuts and icons.
The system tray menu also allows you to manage the window dragging and window compatibility settings and to tweak the system tray icons and menu behavior.
The thing we liked the most is definitely how quick the application actually works. Switching between two desktops takes less than a second, despite the visual effects that you see every time this process takes place. We must admit that we had no idea that the 3D effects we’ve seen on Linux distributions gifted with Compiz are also possible on a Windows machine.
An efficient desktop organizer
To sum up, DeskSpace is a great way to organize your desktop efficiently, thus gaining more space for your windows and icons. Switching between the desktops is a stunning visual experience achieved in 3D.
