If you are one of those people who are easily distracted if there are a lot of applications opened on their screen, virtual desktops are a great way to get your focus back. Virtual desktops allow you to create multiple workspaces, enabling you to keep your work organized. You can avoid all the clutter and distraction, increasing your productivity and decreasing the time wasted in opening and closing applications. mDesktop is an open source application that lets you create multiple desktops on your computer screen. It supports up to 10 virtual desktops, allows switching between desktops using hot keys, and lets you send active applications to any virtual desktop. Moreover, you can maintain a list of applications that you would like to keep enabled on all virtual desktops.

After installation, mDesktop silently sits in the system tray. Right-clicking the icon allows you to switch between desktops, Hide Icon, and enter the Settings panel.


The Settings window has three tabs; General, Desktop Names and Windows. The General tab lets you set the number of virtual desktops and specify hot keys to Switch Directly to a Desktop, Send An Active Window to a Desktop, Switch to Next Desktop, Switch to Previous Desktop and toggle Desktop Cycling. The Desktop Names tab lets you assign names to each desktop, while Windows tab lets you define the applications you would like to keep active on every virtual desktop.
