The way multitasking is meant to be.

Now you can multitask, work with more than one application at a time, in Mac OS X by using CTVD. CTVD allows you to run many applications side-by-side, yet keep your workspace organized and your workflow efficient. The enhanced pager allows you to view the your applications and instantly switch between desktops as you work on different tasks. You can work with groups of windows, not just single applications. CTVD is highly customizable in appearance and action; it works the way you want it to work!


Full support for X11
CTVD fully supports Apple X11. With CTVD, X11 windows behave just like your other Mac OS X windows; they can be placed on separate desktops, respond to focus follows mouse, and activated through the pager.

Full support for Expose
Apple introduced Expose to help organize your windows. Now CTVD and Expose work together, increasing your efficiency. Use Expose to reveal windows on the active desktop and use CTVD to switch between those windows.


We took a good feature and made it better. Now you can focus a window without raising the window. Also, you can turn off focus follows mouse with a HotKey giving you more control than ever.

New enhanced pager
CTVD's pager is easier to use. The new ToolTips make window and virtual desktop identification simple. If you frequently change screen resolutions, you can lock the pager to the edge of the screen to always keep it in place. And, like the Dock, you can use the new autohide feature to save precious screen space.

Enhanced Pager


AppleScript support
In Mac OS X, AppleScript allows you to automate many tasks. CTVD can now run AppleScripts whenever you change desktops. Or, you can use AppleScript through other applications to control CTVD by getting virtual desktop information, changing your active virtual desktop, and moving application windows to virtual desktops.
