Workspace Switcher

Workspace Switcher provides a quick and easy way to step through your monitors on a Windows(R) environment without the need to reach for your mouse (or other pointing device).

Workspace Switcher is able to do so by registering a hot key with windows and listening to it. When a hotkey event is received, it steps through your monitors, one monitor per hotkey. When your last monitor is reached, the program selects your first one again.


You are going to need a recent Python installed on your Windows box and you are also going to need the Python for Windows Extensions. You can find it on http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/. If you don't have Python installed, I recommend installing the Community Edition of ActiveState's Python, which can be found at http://www.activestate.com/activepython/downloads.


Unless you have a multi-monitor setup and use some kind of focus-follow-mouse feature on Windows (I recommend the "True X-Mouse Gizmo for Windows", you might not be able to fully enjoy the benefits of this program.


The default hotkey combination is the Windows Logo + Esc and the only way you can change that is by changing the program's source code.
