CubeDesktop creates six virtual and independent desktops, increasing the space you have to work and play.
Being the most robust multiple desktop software, CubeDesktop solves the desktop clutter problem once and for all. Each virtual desktop is a distinct working environment. The taskbar shows only the applications opened on the current desktop, greatly reducing the clutter.
Every single desktop may have its own wallpapers, icons and name. Change your Windows wallpaper as usual and arrange your icons using your favourite layout on every single desktop, CubeDesktop just remembers everything when you switch between desktops.
CubeDesktop also includes an integrated icon manager, allowing you to quick and easily which icons are shown on every desktop.
You are able to tag desktops as totally private(you can´t see its content untel you enter a password) or partially private (it can be seen but needs a password in order to be activated).
