Windows 7 Virtual Desktop Manager

WindowsPager is not a new tool, but the latest update brings seamless integration to Windows 7. It is an opensource portable pager utility for Windows that creates four virtual desktops(also called virtual workspaces).

It integrates perfectly in the Windows 7 taskbar(also called superbar) with complete preview of apps running in virtual desktops. Clicking each icon will take you to it’s respective virtual desktop.

Apart from switching the desktops by clicking the icons in the taskbar, you can also switch by right-clicking any Windows title bar and selecting the virtual desktops.

You will be surprised to know that the preview of virtual desktops in the taskbar is live, which means that you will see which windows are open in each desktop and where they are positioned. To test this feature hold any window and move it around the desktop, watching the preview in the taskbar. 😉

It works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. You will find executables for both 32-bit and 64-bit OS inside the zip archive. It is a portable tool which weights around 500Kb only and can run straight from the USB drive. Enjoy!


  1. Another tool is Mosaico from Soulid Studio (www.soulidstudio.com). It’s a little bit different because you can arrange windows and take a “snapshot” to restore later. So you can have the same window in many “virtual desktops” (aka snapshots). It also do an automatica arrangement of windows that make them occupy all the monitor surface. And when you drag or resize windows it accomodates the other ones to mantain the monitor surface full covered.
