Ok so my problem is that my desktop is becoming cluttered with App links (most i need some I dont) and its slightly hectic. I remember a while back that i had an app that allowed me to have several desk tops.

An example of this is on desktop 1 i have my games, on desk 2, programming tools ect ect.

I've looked into it and found a few, but all they did was run different applications in a desktop, any changes to the icons happened to all of them.


Does anyone know of a program that can do this for me, thanks!

Why not create folders and put the applications into the folders? Games in a 'Games' folder, Programming Tools in a 'Programming Tools' folder etc.

If you have your mind set on a Multi-Desktop application however, I suggest DeskSpace. It's very good, pretty stable and easy-ish on your RAM! DeskSpace is a 3D desktop, you might be looking for something more like the Microsoft Multi-Desktop one (I can't remember what it's called.)

I tried that one, but it doesnt do the icon thing,

I know it would be easier to do that but, im just slightly OCD about my computer. Its weird.

I use DeskSpace and it DOES allow you to put icons on different screens.

Rouch steps on how to do this:

-Right click on the DeskSpace icon.
-Go to 'Manage Desktop Application Rules'
-And create rules for your relevant icons.

Check out this thread, it has a few. I've used YOM3D but I cannot find a good download link to the last freeware edition. The others i haven't tried.

YOM3D or Yodm3D changed ownership or whatever and is now called DeskSpace.
