    Hi Frank D and Mikerman! Glad to be of help! I really appreciate it. About the virtual desktops, some of its purpose are it gives the user more space to group related opened programs, it lets the user to hastily rearrange its group of program windows, and it helps the user easily locate and switch to any opened program window or group of program windows. The bottom line is that the end user will have a more clutter-free multi-desktop if the user will maximize the use of the virtual desktops.

    Nice review! I’m still trying to figure out what the benefits would be.

    And so, a question from someone not currently using virtual desktops: what’s the purpose, and what’s an example of how people are using them? It almost sounds like a mega-window sort of feature–perhaps, have one desktop open with work windows and applications open on it, and then a second desktop with social windows and open applications? Or, different desktops with separate work projects on each? Really am trying to understand the purpose and benefits–thanks.
