Desktop viewThe Desktop view is in some way quite similar to the built-in system app Desktop. But it's a highly improved version. All desktop items can be listed in the same way as in the built-in one (icon and caption), with 3 zoom levels, etc. But it is possible for the user to create folders and any number of subfolders on the desktopand organize items between them.

An item on the PowerDesk Pro desktop can be (any number of):


For any item placed on the desktop you can assign a global hotkey. Global hotkey means once a hotkey is assigned then it works not only when PowerDesk is running in foreground, but when PowerDesk is in background also and it will work with any other application.

E.g. with one key press you can immediately dial your wife, open contact details of your boss, start any application, etc any time you work with your Communicator.

To define hotkey for an item you need to select the item, and use 'Properties' command on the Desk menu (or press Ctrl-P).


All items on the desk can be sorted. There are 2 different sorts:
  • Sort by name. Automatic sort method, which shows all your items on the desktop sorted by item name.
  • Manual sort. In this mode you can arrange all items on the desktop in your own order.
When Manual sort mode is activated you can use Move left (Ctrl+Left arrow)and Move right (Ctrl+Right arrow) commands to move (swap) items and change their order the way you like.

Today pane

In the top right corner of the desktop you can see the Today pane. It shows brief information from today view. Here you can see how many unread messages you have in your inbox, how many uncompleted tasksyou have for today (+ overdue tasks here as well) and how many various uncompleted events and appointments you have for today. If you are not interested in such information to be visible on yourdesktop you can switch it off in View settings.

  • Pressing Ctrl, Shift, Ctrl-Shift and Func keys animates the buttons bar. While you press one of these keys the button set is changed and different commands are displayed. Most commands on button bar can be accessed in this way without switching to menus.
  • You can change any item icon or text by using 'Properties' command on the Desk menu (or press Ctrl-P).
  • Using 'Move to folder' command (Ctrl-M) you can move any selected item to any other folder.
  • Using 'Go to folder' command (Space key) allows you to go to any folderor subfolder in the fastest way.
