Yod’m - Like Beryl for Windows

Filed under

I recently stumbled upon (literally) Yod’m (Yet another desktop manager 3d) which looks a bit like Linux’s Beryl, but for Windows XP and Windows Vista.

Bit More Here.


It sounds a bit more cumbersome to use than our own beryl. To quote the site,

By default, the rotation of the cube is done with the keys CTRL+SHIFT+Arrows :

* CTRL+SHIFT+Left/Right = Next/prev desktop

* CTRL+SHIFT+Up = Activate and show a "far" view of the current desktop, Left and right to turn the cube

* CTRL+SHIFT+Down = Activate and show a "near" view of the current desktop, Left and right to turn the cube

Hold down CTRL+SHIFT to use the mouse to turn the cube.
( The rotation is possible only horizontally )

To move a windows to another desktop :

* Click on the title bar of the window (not maximized if possible), hold down
* Push CTRL+SHIFT to activate the cube, hold down
* When the cube is activated, move the window on left or right
* Release CTRL+SHIFT
