Want to enjoy virtual desktops on Windows just like you would on Linux Ubuntu? WindowsPager is the solution with 4 desktop support for infinitesimal memory consumption.
A virtual desktop is simply the possibility to enjoy an additional display space by multiplying the number of Windows Desktops. Each of the virtual offices will therefore have its own taskbar.
To install WindowsPager, download the application via the following link:
Unzip the ZIP archive in the folder of your choice and double-click the file Windowspager.exe to launch the application, file present in the WindowsPager folder. Note the presence of a 64-bit version.
A toolbar that is perfectly integrated with the Windows taskbar now allows you to switch between your different offices.
You will also notice that the windows are represented according to their size and by an icon symbolising the launched application.
To easily arrange your windows, click on the application icon on the left in the title bar and then choose the desktop to which you want to move the latter.
A demo video is available on the project website.
Launch WindowsPager at Login
However, there is not yet an option to launch WindowsPager at Windows startup. However, simply drag/drop a shortcut into the folder Start-up of start Menu.
So, right click Open on the file Start-up. Then move the application Windowspager.exe while pressing the key ALT to the folder Start-up. The screenshot below is better than a long speech:
WindowsPager is truly the essential application to manage virtual desktops. Despite the absence of some configuration settings that would be welcome — number of virtual desktops, start-up of Windows, etc. You can only hope to take advantage of it in a future version because WindowsPager is only in beta at the moment.
