I say "virtual desktops" because I'm not sure how to better describe this. Is it possible to make a Win32 program that functions like an MDI app / desktop? By that I mean to be able to create child processes whose windows are child windows of the virtual desktop app, instead of the user's main desktop? (i.e. so you could have many program windows all encapsulated into a single MDI app window.) Any information would be appriciated. Thanks, D

I'm not exactly sure if I catch your meaning, but in terms of desktop virtualization, you may want to check out msdn.com for CreateDesktop() -- once one has been created, the parent window parameter in Create*() can be set to the obtained handle rather than HWND_DESKTOP or NULL as normally done.
