By default, Windows 7 does not support Virtual Desktops (or Workspaces) unlike Linux. However, there's a program called Desktops from Microsoft Sysinternals that provides a similar functionality.

However, I discovered one important limitation: scrolling generally doesn't work on the second (and probably subsequent) desktops. :cry:
So far, scrolling works on Firefox, but only because it has a built-in scrolling feature (click middle button, then move Trackpoint up/down, click again to stop scrolling); the usual "middle button press-and-hold" scrolling doesn't work at all.

I haven't done any more tests (like using a mouse), but will get back to it when I have free time.

Is Desktops its own application? If so, you may need to add an explicit entry for it in TP4TABLE.DAT. ... Trackpoint
