I'm a big believer in the dual-monitor setup. It gives you so much more screen area. You can have more programs open at once with less clutter. It really does make you more productive.
I rarely use my work computer without using both monitors. Things get more complicated when I use my laptop, though! Going back to a single screen feels so confining.
That's where Dexpot comes in. Dexpot adds virtual desktops to Windows. This allows you to manage your open programs in separate spaces. It's like having a dual- or even quadruple-monitor setup. However, you're only using one screen!
Dexpot does so much more, though. You can control almost every aspect of each virtual desktop. That includes things like transparency, hotkey control and so much more. You can even have a different background for each desktop.
Dexpot is available for private, personal use only. You'll definitely want to give it a try. Commercial users or businesses must purchase a license.
