Hello All,
I've downloaded and installed the Windows Powertoy for "Virtual Desktop."
The problem is now what? I have no icon or menu to set it up. From searching
through the user group group it seems that I should have Virtual Desktop
Manager and yet even with a search, I can't find it. Any suggestions?

Right-click the Taskbar, select Toolbars, and put a checkmark on "Desktop
Manager". The help file is "vdm.chm" located in %Systemroot%\help

From %Systemroot%\System32\VDM.CHM help file, see topic "Switch between
desktops"

Switch between desktops

Click the Quick Switch button on the taskbar for the desktop that you want
to open.
-or-
Press the shortcut key that you set for the desktop that you want to open.
For example, click or press Winkey+2 to open desktop number 2.
Note
You can modify the shortcut keys that you use to open each desktop or
Preview mode. Right-click any of the five VDM buttons on the taskbar, and
then click Configure Shortcut Keys to make your changes.
