VirtuaWin: Another Virtual Desktop Usage

(Wanted to close all Windows Explorers with a single click, but dare not during file transfer)
I'm the kind who opens a new Windows Explorer whenever I need to go to another folder, instead of locating from an existing one. Sometimes I end up opening a lot of Windows that I'd want to close together with the "Close All" function. However, sometimes during file transfers or other processing (taking ownership, changing attributes, etc) I can't afford to stop it. Here Virtual Desktop helps by moving the critical mission to another desktop without stopping them, now I can close the rest of the Windows!
Also this feature is also good for people under stress. Who wouldn't feel frustrated and tired looking at their taskbar full of tasks? Why not move them to another desktop and feel fresh with a new desktop? For example, during writing Windows notifies me one of my harddrive is dying. While I decided to do data recovery, that takes a long time with the progress bar and alien machine codes, so I just move away the recovery to another desktop. Mind freed.

For virtual desktop, I use VirtuaWin because I love it can switch screen by pressing alt + moving mouse at the edges of the screen.
