Virtual Desktops

Virtual desktops simulate a bigger desktop than is actually physically available. This makes it possible to have the mail program on one part of the virtual desktop, project number one on another part of the desktop and project number two on a third part desktop in such a way that only one of the parts is visible at one time.
