    Microsoft released a free download that can do this in XP but don't know
    about Vista.

  7. Hello,

    Thank you for using newsgroup!

    From your post, what is your goal? Based on my knowledge, there is no
    built-in feature Vista to do this job.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Dah... have you ever even used linux?

    Have you not seen the pager that gives you multiple desktops?

    try copying that please in a good way for the next powertoy for vista..
    because the one for XP was pathetic

    MS is not about innovation.. its about stealing good ideas and giving them
    to the world (TM)
