Get Infinite Scrolling On Windows Desktop With WindowSlider

Virtual desktops allows you to have multiple work spaces available while having just a single monitor. It allows you to have more than one program windows open at all the times, so you do not have to close and open it again and again whenever you want to change your focus from one project to another. If you are tired of playing around with virtual desktop, or opening, closing, minimizing and maximizing application windows to avoid clutter on your desktop, have a go at WindowSlider. It is a desktop window management application that makes the desktop infinite on both left and right side. Infinite scrolling was first introduced on the web, and WindowSlider applies the same concept to Windows desktop (though not the first one to do so). You can scroll desktop to the left and right side allowing you to open multiple windows at a time. This gives you more space for application windows without them getting overlapped because of less screen space. It gives you the liberty to scroll left or right using keyboard hotkeys or just with your mouse.

The application approaches the problem of having not enough screen space a little differently. Instead of providing you with separate virtual desktops, you have one desktop that can be scrolled on both sides to have more space.

WindowSlider resides in the system tray after installation. Right-click its icon to Enable/Disable infinite desktop and access the Hot keys Configuration window. The Hot keys Configuration window lets you edit hotkeys for Slide Left, Slide Right and Center Active Window functions. You can also scroll the desktop left or right by placing the mouse at the left or right edge of screen respectively or by switching to another window using the Windows default Alt+Tab application scrolling feature.

Watch the video below to see it in action. Note that infinite scrolling appears laggy in the video, but in reality it is smooth. Give it a try yourself!

WindowSlider is still in beta phase and according to the developer, experiences some issues when running on Windows XP. We hope that it will be solved in the next release. It has been successfully tested and works flawlessly on both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 7.
