Desktop PiP display?

    I'm wondering if VirtuaWin is capable of arraying desktops in a PiP style. I'd like to be able to swap between desktops but still have whichever desktops aren't active be displayed in smaller (PiP) windows somewhere on my screen.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Not sure if this is what you are looking for but checkout the VWPreview module or possibly KvasdoPager module.

    Unfortunately, VWPreview seems to only take a "snapshot" of the desktops available. It doesn't provide a constant, live PiP preview. I was hoping for something similar to the Windows AERO preview windows - only with hot swapping.

    Not sure what problem you are having with VWPreview, if you disable 'Close after desktop change' in the 'Desktop Select' section of VWPreview's setup the preview window should remain open and regularly update - I believe the default update rate is every 10secs but this can be increase by editing the config - see the module's README.txt and search for 'fulUdTm2#'.
