OK, guys, here's another one of those toys that you just have to have, just because it's fun! Well, it's useful, too, but ... no one can have too much fun in their life!

Cool Desk allows you to turn one desktop into several (up to nine, in fact!). It appears as a toolbar, either vertically or horizontally, with buttons that allow you to quickly switch between desktops. You can also have shortcuts to each desktop ON your desktop. The desktop/system tray icons are the same between desktops, but you can have different wallpaper and/or icons. The interface is skinnable, with 10 different skins included and more available for download on the software's website. Moving programs between desktops is easy using the manager window. You can also set hotkeys for each desktop, enable a transparent background for desktop icon text, and keep the main window always open.

I've had a great deal of fun with Cool Desk. The shareware version is fully functional for 30 days. Come on, live a little .... Give it a try!
