“Managing a department is no picnic, but managing space on your
desktop can be even more troublesome. At any given moment, you may
have any number of applications open on the desktop at once. Each
one carries critical pieces of your daily life. You’ve got your
e-mail client, a spreadsheet or two, that speech you’re working on
and a project planner. Throw in a browser window or two and your
desktop’s a mess. Having the right thing up on your screen when you
need it can involve a series of Alt-tabs or feverish mouse clicks
to minimize and maximize windows.
