Graphics, User Interfaces Stardock on Tuesday released the 2007 version of its popular Object Desktop suite of Windows customization utilities. The package of tools enables customers to completely change the way Windows looks and functions to suit their personal tastes. Included in Object Desktop 2007 are the latest iterations of WindowBlinds, IconPackager, DesktopX, WindowFX, RightClick, Keyboard LaunchPad and more. Enhanced File Dialog is a newcomer to the suite, providing a much more expansive Open and Save dialog window than that offered in Windows.

Multiple desktops

The only thing that is appealing to me is the "Virtual Desktops" app. It's nice to have multiple desktops in Windows. Too bad it's shareware and too bad you can't right click on the taskbar to send a running application to a certain desktop. The only way to move them between desktops is to drag the little previews from one desktop to the other.

Also, I had some trouble with Winamp. Even if I dragged it from desktop #1 to #2, the main window also remained in #1. The Video Window had to be dragged separately.

Have you tried Virtual Dimension? That lets you right click on the toolbar and send apps to a different desktop, or set them to be on all desktops. I moved to that after trying the truly awful powertoys version for a while.

Yes the XP power toys virtual desktop manager is one of the worst experiences I've had with virtual desktops on Windows.

Thanks for Virtual Dimension, didn't know about it. I'll give it a try.
