These days, multitasking is a necessity. But too many open program windows can clutter your desktop and slow you down.
Desktops is the free virtual desktop program from Microsoft. It lets you create up to four virtual desktops and assign certain programs to each.
For example, one virtual desktop can be designated for work information. The next desktop might be for Web browsing. Another desktop could hold your music player and files. This way, you only view the program windows you need to see.
Once downloaded, you will select a hotkey to take you back and forth from desktop to desktop. It's that easy.
There are a few other virtual desktop programs available. However, I recommend this Microsoft program because it integrates better with Windows and uses fewer system resources. Your computer will benefit without getting bogged down.
