Modern computer power is more than sufficient to let you run numerous applications at the same time. You can surf the Internet, listen to music and chat with your friends all at once. But the more tasks you launch, the harder it becomes to manage them. That's when you might start thinking of getting a second monitor.
AltDesk offers you a better choice. It creates several Virtual Desktops that you can easily use. Switching from an office application to your favorite Internet browser can be done in the blink of an eye without maximizing and minimizing numerous windows manually or switching them with the Taskbar.
With AltDesk you can create as many Virtual Desktops as you want and switch among them with ease. You don't even need to remember where you've put a certain application's window as its icon is displayed by AltDesk. You can also easily swap tasks between Desktops, using Drag and Drop.
A brief list of AltDesk features includes: * Easy task management * Simple, user-friendly interface, supporting multiple languages * Light resource consumption * Hotkeys for any actions * Skins to change the program's appearance * Reliability: even in the event of a failure, you'll be able to recover the lost application's window * Numerous advanced features, such as setting unique wallpapers for each Virtual Desktop, sticky apps, autorun, etc.
AltDesk is a user-centered application: one does not need to learn complex manuals to make it work right, it "just works" immediately after installation. We worked hard to set the most comfortable default settings and create a user-friendly interface. We've spent a lot of time making sure it works fast and doesn't bother you with unnecessary details.
This version of AltDesk features even more improvements in speed, stability and usability and we're sure you won't be disappointed by it.
