Two tiny, simple scripts (secondDesktop & desktopSwitch) that elaborate (slightly) on _WinAPI_CreateDesktop() to create a second workspace with some interesting features: Startup: define any number of programmes to be auto-started on the second desktop, hard-coded (by you, in desktopSwitch.au3) or parsed as parameters (from secondDesktop.au3);Full desktop mode: provides acccess to all your desktop shortcuts, start menu (Win7), taskbar, plus a one-button switch in both desktops;Kiosk mode: provides an empty workspace where only your designated startup entries will run; Switch button/GUI is absent; an unadvertised hotkey provides switching to the original desktop (Ctrl-Alt-Del still works, but a task manager started on the second desktop will appear on the original desktop). To enable kiosk mode, set flag $kioskmode=True in secondDesktop.au3;Security: software keyloggers running in your regular environment cannot capture keystrokes on the second desktop, and windows messages cannot be sent between desktops, so your apps won't be hijacked easily through remote control. (NB not extensively tested; use at your own risk!) In full desktop mode, the (red or green) background colour of the Switch GUI shows you whether you are on the exposed or secure desktop.I SecondDesktop.v0.8.7z (first beta release) Important: you'll need to compile desktopSwitch before running secondDesktop. You can test your edited version of desktopSwitch.au3 "dry," as a script on your regular desktop first, by setting its internal flag $testing=True; but don't forget to reset that flag again before compiling.
