I have a projector and a huge screen. I would like to split the screen into multiple desktops. I would like the setup to mimic as if I had multiple flat panels connected to a multi-montor video card. I don't want to have to toggle between these desktops, rather I would like to take my big screen and slice it into 4+ smaller screens where I can maximize programs in each screen. I realize that I could just tile the windows however I want a taskbar on each "virtual screen".

There is also a third-party proggie which can split the Desktop into 8 IIRC.

This is close to what I would like. Perhaps I am doing something wrong. I am trying to figure out how to have all 4 desktops visible at the same time and be able to operate out of each desktop on my screen.

Did you come up with a solution to this?  I'm in the same boat and I don't want to buy one of those video encoders that do this from four seperate inputs.

Unfortunately nothing really came close to what I was wanting to do. Let me know if you find something. Thanks, Chris
