Get Up To Four Virtual Desktops On Windows 7

Advertisement

Not upgrading to Windows 10 but wishing you could maybe get one or two of its new features on your older Windows? If the feature you’re pining for is virtual desktops, Virtuoz is a light-weight utility that can meet your needs provided they are fairly basic. It’s a free app that lets you create up to four virtual desktops, and has keyboard shortcuts for quickly letting you switch between them.

Update: Malware detected. Do not install.

Virtuoz is a portable utility so  you don’t need to install the app itself. Simply run the EXE file and the app will run and minimize to the system tray. You can start using it right away. To switch to a desktop, use the keyboard shortcut Alt+1 …Alt+4 with each number corresponding to a desktop number.

Virtuoz

Virtuoz is very basic so do not expect a lot of features. It handles virtual desktops reasonably well; apps that are open on one desktop are not visible on the other. If you exit Virtuoz, all open apps and windows are sent to the first (and remaining) desktop.

The cons of Virtuoz are more like limitations because the app is so basic; you cannot send a window open on one desktop to a different desktop. You will always have four virtual desktops and you cannot exit or close a desktop that you do not need. You can only switch to a desktop but not preview it and the windows you have open on it like you can in the multitasking view in Windows 10.

    Just saw this article on my newsfeed. Downloaded the archive and my antivirus said hello.
    I’m starting to have second thoughts about you, AD.

    • Thank you. The post has been updated and the link to the app has been removed. .

    • 360 is but a piece of crap, it kills no virus at all, but its only goal is steeling users’ private information.

    No. There is no feature of Windows 10 that interests me.
