The application boasts of its accessibility functions that enable the user to switch between desktops in numerous ways. The program installs a small bar on the taskbar section called “accelerator keys” which are set of shortcuts for switching between the various desktop interface.
The program separates the applications launched on the different desktop environment making it easy for the user to organize the desktop and prevent it from getting cluttered. This feature is extremely useful for computer users who run multiple applications concurrently. It helps them keep their desktop organized while performing their computing tasks. One shortfall of this program is its incompatibility with Windows Aero which stops working, and fingers conflict with this program as the cause. However, Windows Aero does not hinder the smooth functioning of the PC, the users can continue enjoying their multiple desktop environments.
