As a tech blogger, I often open a lot of applications at a time. Notepad, browsers, paint, tested software, Windows explorer, screenshot capturer, camtasia, and others. This sometimes messed me up, make me difficult to switch from one application to another. I need a software that could help me to manage the opened applications into several categories. I decide to install a virtual desktop software on my Windows PC. After I am looking for several virtual desktop software, I choose to use nSpaces.
nSpaces is a free virtual desktop software created by Bytesignals. It allows users to create multiple desktops on their computer. Users can open different applications on each separate virtual desktop to improve their productivity. They even can protect each virtual desktop with a unique password.
