Virtuawin 4.5 (Virtuelle Desktop)

Beitrag von H2O »

Homepage neu:

Nicht so Leistungsvoll wie JSPager aber auch gut

Using a virtual desktop manager is a way to organize applications over several "virtual" desktops. For example if you use two virtual desktops you can put a webbrowser on desk 1 and by using a desktop manager "switch away" the webbrowser and it will seem like you have a new empty workspace (desk 2) to put another application/applications on. Virtual desktops are very common in the Unix community and once getting used to this, it is very hard to manage without it.

One of my own little projects is a virtual window manager for Win9x/NT/Win2K/XP. I got tired of all the "multifunctional" managers with different displays and toolbars, etc.
This program is developed after my own needs, I wanted a quick and easy to use manager with no fancy graphics, and I seldom use more than 4 workspaces (but now it has up to 9).
The idea of VirtuaWin is that it should be as simple and effective as possible but still highly configurable.

VirtuaWin is copyright (c) 1999, 2000, 2001, and 2002 by Johan Piculell and is from version 2.0 and up, licensed through the GNU General Public License. See for the complete license.

I would like to give credits to the persons that created Inno Setup and the Lcc-Win32 compiler, great work guys!

Configurable key/mouse control
Small, fast and easy to use, "just the needed stuff(TM)" :)
Supports user defined icons
Can keep an active window on every desktop
Can set windows sticky to make them appear on all desktops
Configurable layout of virtual desktops, up to 9 desktops
Supports modules for additional features
Can save applications desktop belongings and restore them upon restart
Uses less than 1% of the CPU even on a low end computer
Plus much more...
Ciao ;)

Eine neue Version ist jetzt da:
Ver 2.7.1 2003/04/11
* Bugfix: Accidently placed another option over the "switch minimized" option in the setup.
Ver 2.7 2003/04/09
* Double click on the icon will bring up setup, and select "disable" instead for disabling.
* Added config options to disable taskbar detection and the alternative hiding technique.
* Bugfix: All windows was shown in the window menu if only one menu was used
* Bugfix: Added retries to add the systray icon incase VirtuaWin starts up before the sytray process.
* Added a new setup tab, "expert" and moved some settings from misc.
* Bugfix: Old taskbar position was not deleted if taskbar position moved during operation. Also improved left/right/up/down taskbar position detection
* Bugfix: The "tricky" windows was not moved away far enough from the screen so you could see a small grey bar at the screen bottom.
* Bugfix: Changed the wait time for module startup timeout to 10 secs instead of 5 to avoid module errors during startup.
Previous changes...

Es gibt auch mehrere Skins für die Taskbar Icons:

Update auf Version 2.10 (16.02.2005):
* Changed compiler to gcc, maybe fixes some reported crashes?
* Added possibility to choose if sticky should be permanent for all instances of the same classname.
* Added module message for changing the sticky state of a window
* Use virtual sceensize for mouse switching instead since multimonitor setups would switch desktop prematurely otherwise.
* Added application icons to the window list

Ver 4.2 dürfte einige Win7 Anpassungen beinhalten, ansonsten finde ich im CL nichts herausragendes.
