deskloops – reinventing task switching and window management



It’s good to see that there are at least some people on this planet that innovate the things we are working with each day. One innovation for today is “deskloops” – a great application that reinvents the way we switch tasks and organize the windows of the applications we use for our daily work.


Since Deskloops is currently in beta state you can download it for free at Xilokits website.



“Imagine yourself at the center of a virtual loop where all the windows you use are spread out around you. Whichever window you need to view can be centered in front of you with a click of a button.


Take this idea and zoom into your pc environment. With Deskloops, all the windows you have open are aligned side by side in a loop-like order. No more countless windows arranged one on top of the other in a confusing manner. You can access all the information you need and navigate through it easily.


The loop can be rotated clockwise and counterclockwise simply by moving the cursor to the edge of the screen and using right click.


Think of the loop as a dynamic rubber band; with each newly opened window the loop automatically grows. With every closed or minimized window, the loop becomes smaller.


Anytime you want to return to the desktop, double click on Deskloops tray icon and the windows will shift aside in one swift motion.”
