AltDesk is a Skinnable Virtual Desktop Manager for Windows, which makes your daily work easier.
It offers you a completely new way of managing running applications on your computer, just as if you had a whole set of monitors. For example, you could launch an Office suite on one Virtual Desktop while working with your e-mail on another. Swapping tasks and switching Desktops can be easily done in the blink of an eye.
AltDesk supports skins, which let you choose your preferred appearance and form. AltDesk displays applications' icons, supports thumbnails, drag-and-drop and lets you pin applications to certain desktops. It does not require a lot of precious screen space, usually being as small as a window title bar. You can also minimize AltDesk to tray and switch tasks with hotkeys.
AltDesk has a user friendly interface, translated into many languages, which makes working with it even more comfortable.
