VirtualDesktopSwitcher Description

If you are the kind of person who constantly switches between open applications, then virtual desktops can surely make your life a lot easier. While they have been around for years on Linux and Macs, this basic functionality feature has only become available in Windows 10.

VirtualDesktopSwitcher is a small piece of software that enables you to switch between virtual desktops using the mouse scroll.

Enables you to make virtual desktops more functional

Without denying that pressing the default Win + Tab keys is not exactly over-complicated, when you are working with dozens of programs at a time, it is just easier to navigate through them using the mouse scroll instead of a key combination.

If you are using Windows along with other operating systems, then you probably know that the virtual desktop feature seems to lack the same smooth functionality distinct to Linux or Macs. For starters, you cannot set different wallpapers for each virtual desktop you create.

A further nuisance is that you cannot launch a new instance of an application that is already running on your computer in this manner. While it is true that VirtualDesktopSwitcher is not an advanced program that is capable of solving the aforementioned functionality issues, it can, at least, help you get your desktops more organized.

It has some hiccups

It is important to note that the application has only been tested in the US English version of Windows then. Therefore, in case you are using another language pack, then you should keep in mind that there is a chance that the hard code titles do not work.

Then again, the app works fine for the US English version and can help you make things more convenient if you are taking advantage of this feature. For instance, you can keep your music player and perhaps a game you are commonly playing in one desktop and productivity software solutions such as Excel, Office or OneNote in another, so you can easily switch between them when you want to take a break.

A simple tool for anyone using virtual desktops

In case you are using virtual desktops to create various sessions for business and leisure purposes, then perhaps VirtualDesktopSwitcher might be worth a try.
