We already have a standard senior engineer workstation, dual monitors both a 19" wide screen 1440 x 900 SyncMaster 940BW running Vista Business (Thanks boss!) and a Windows Server 2008 on my Laptop (Yeah! Soon to be R2 Jay-R!).
One day, let us just say, I’m Multi-Tasking (again), doing some Clerical Project management, also in architecture & designs, collaborating and helping the team on some projects (teamwork always counts here) and a failed backup reported by the infrastructure group! Pheeew! and what do I got? multiple instance of IE with tabs from MSDN, technet , opened outlook messages, Microsoft Projects Files that is gona be uploaded to our MOSS, Word and Excel documents, some not to mention the unclosed personal IM windows from my live messenger (thanks Josh for getting the remote desktops from me).
I got to have more space! You know, I can feel my real-estate has getting smaller by the minute, plus all this clutter in my desktop has got to stop and I need to organize it.
So I’m sharing this from Sysinternals: Desktops.
What this does is that it gives you additional 3 desktops (4 counting the current) and to switch to those with just a hot key. My hotkey is what you see: Alt + Function keys where each function keys represent each desktop number. (I would replace this however because I cant seem to use ALT+F4.. silly me)
