WindowsPager Reviews

Wow! This One Is Very Lightweight and Easy to Use!

It does not even have a GUI setting interface. Just a few icons in the taskbar and a little menu in the titlebar, the most two common things, they are handy and stable, I guess I don't need other ways to manage windows.

Before trying this I also tried Dexpot, a very powerful virtual desktop software. But maybe I'm just unlucky I lost one of my windows and cannot find it back by using all the ways I called to mind. This did not happen on WindowsPager, my machine is a bit slow for what I'm running on my system so it does not respond that quick, WindowsPager will tell me the reponse status on the screen. I think this make it stable.

I guess I will continue to use it.

I switched back to Dexpot, finally it's better in more aspects.


Decided to use this rather than Sysinternals Desktops, Dexpot and VirtuaWin.

Unfortunately there is no configuration GUI. The defaults are not sane, especially if you have a fat taskbar like me (default config takes up half the taskbar).

I'm posting my own windowspager.ini (for x64 1.02) for anyone interested:

It has 4 spaces bound to alt+[1-4]. You move a window to a space with alt+ctrl+[1-4]. The small tray icon uses 1-wide 4-tall instead of 4-wide 1-tall default.
