With the abundance and diversity of games and utilities you can install and run on a computer, it's pretty difficult to keep a clean desktop.

Luckily, applications like goScreen let you set up multiple desktop environments for a better managements of your visual space.

Desktop icons are cleverly arranged, as well as windows so that the menu doesn't overlap anything. However, there's an option to make it hide when not used, or even not displayed at all and simply have desktops changed through the use of hotkeys.
The application makes you feel in control, with beginners benefiting from an impressive array of visual and functional customization settings, as well as experts than can create or load their own commands and scripts to automate certain tasks.
Starting with the number of desktops you can create, there's a lot of variety for tweaks in terms of visuals and accessibility. Considerable effort was put into development, with practical and comprehensive menus and confirmation buttons fitted with multiple choices that let you select target to apply chances to.
You can have programs automatically start when switching to a particular screen, as well as processes by simply typing it in a dedicated field. Sadly, there's no management options as far as shortcuts and other desktop icons are concerned, and it would have been useful to have the liberty to design more layouts.
Bottom line is that goScreen is an application you need to consider if you're having trouble working with window spread on a single desktop.
