'Ello,

I recently downloaded and installed Virtual Desktop Manager Power Toy from the Microsoft web site, it sounds usefull; I could use more than just the one desktop quite alot of the time. Although how do you get it to work? So far I can see no difference what so ever, is there some combination of buttons I am meant to press; or some thing else? I have downloaded the Alt Tab power toy and that works perfectly.

Thank you in advance, El Barto.

Hi El Barto, is that power toy running now? If I remember correctly this will allow you to have more than one desktop in Windows (similar to the Linux environment which I see you have as one of your OS).

right click your taskbar, choose toolbars, choose desktop manager....a new toolbar will appear with the numbers 1,2,3,4 and a green button to split your screen in quarters
