    Hello,

    Recently I have been looking into a Virtual Desktop Switcher for Windows 7. This is because I am running a lot of programs in the taskbar.

    Most of the programs I run, however, require UAC or whatever it is, therefore they run as admin. With the Virtual Desktop Switchers that I have tried, they do not hide these programs, therefore they show up in the taskbar regardless of the desktop that I view.

    Is anyone aware of a Virtual Desktop Switcher which does indeed hide the programs that run as admin, rather than show them in every single window?

    If you do know of any, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    there's another one called Dexpot, and has the option to work like Compix fusion with the 3D cube.

    Haven't found one. I have the same "problem" with Visual Studio, although it doesn't really bother me. I'm using Dexpot too, there is nothing that comes close to it in terms of functions and usability.

    I'll try both them out, thanks.

    Just out of curiosity, have any of you tried running the desktop switcher as an admin (elevated rights), then opened the program you usually use with elevated rights, and seeing if that perhaps leaves that elevated rights program in the 1 desktop only?

    Doing that, if you try to run Dexpot in non-admin, whilst having a admin one running already, then the non admin won't run.

    Heh, interesting. This actually does work, at least with Visual Studio.

    Sweet. It works for numerous programs then, not just the ones I'm using [​IMG]
