Adding a one time message/tutorial when alt-desk is first run will help people understand this program's purpose and how to use it.

Either balloon text or a very short tutorial showing the concept of multiple workspaces would be useful to people who are used to only using one desktop.

It is problematic in Windows OS. We tried doing so.

Click to bring AltDesk to the front, it not always on top. Then switch desktops. One click to bring to front, does not mean I want to switch to desktop 3

Group similar objects on each desktop

I currently have 4 explorer windows, one music player, two word documents and three excel documents on my main desktop. It would be great if all the explorer windows were grouped as one (with the number 4 written on it), the word documents were...

Add the ability to control the priority of the processes on the non-active desktops

It would be helpful to add three options for this with the ability to create rules for different desktops so they are controlled differently. First, have the processes run normally (this would be default). Second, give the ability to pause the...

Have hotkeys work with Remote Desktop Environments for quick switching

The mouse gestures work for switching between the Remote Desktop and my desktop, but to have hotkeys work for this it will be brilliant.

It should havebetter integration with Astonshell, in that the Altdesk controls should be integrated into the Astonshell control if one has Astonshell. A video tutorial for those that haven't used this type of software would also be nice.

When you have Astonshell as I do there is a small icon in the right taskbar with Astonshell functions. Altdesk should integrate with that, maybe causing the icon to change colors or design to acknowledge the change. And a nice video tutorial where...

Have altdesk offer an 'always on top' option!

I like to keep my altdesk bar on top of the windows 7 superbar at the very bottom of the screen, unfortunately it hides behind the superbar when I click it, I would like an always on top feature to keep it on top of all my other programs no matter...

Keep the order in the tray when switching between desktops

I put my apps in a certain order that I can remember easily. When I switch between desktops that order is lost.

Switch between (cycle through) virtual desktops by double-clicking the tray icon.

Also... it would be nicer if the user could choose the location for the storage folder instead of it being automatically created on the primary desktop.

If it would be possible to dock AltDesk to the edge of the desktop, so that you only see maybe a little tiny tab or something... Thanks !

In this way, AltDesk would not have to be moved away in order to see what is under it... It would be available only when you click on it on purpose or hover over it... Thanks !

a simple tooltips would be enough
