Graphical Workspace Manager

Graphical Workspace Manager enables you to operate a workspace control panel. This panel displays a window that contains a miniaturized picture of each workspace on the desktop. You can create, delete, rename, tile, or cascade workspaces. Application windows can be moved (within or between workspaces), terminated, reduced to an icon, or maximized.
