Virtual Desktop is a free utility designed to act as a virtual desktop manager for System 7 and Mac OS 8. Virtual Desktop, simply put, puts scroll bars on your screen. This is the most intuitive way for most people to operate a desktop which is larger than their screen. This virtual desktop can be as large as the user wants it to be, with no additional expense of memory.

Virtual Desktop, the premier virtual desktop manager for the Macintosh, is an adaptation of the kind of virtual window manager found on many Window System workstations. Having allocated some memory for off-screen buffers, they let the user´s screen view move between several "rooms" where various programs can put their windows. Usually, these rooms are non-overlapping and arranged in a rigid grid pattern. A small-scale window shows the user where all the windows are, in a stylized form.
