Documentation

py-VirtualDesktopAccessor

Implements a subset of the functionality offered by https://github.com/Ciantic/VirtualDesktopAccessor, written in pure Python and installable via pip.

pip install pyvda

Usage

The following functions are implemented. The only deliberate difference with the behaviour of Ciantic's original DLL is that desktops here are 1-indexed, as this reflects the numbers shown in the task view.

def GetCurrentDesktopNumber() -> int:
def GetDesktopCount() -> int:
def MoveWindowToDesktopNumber(hwnd: int, number: int) -> None:
def GoToDesktopNumber(number: int) -> None:
def GetWindowDesktopNumber(hwnd: int) -> int:

Example usage:

import pyvda
import win32gui

number_of_active_desktops = pyvda.GetDesktopCount()
current_desktop = pyvda.GetCurrentDesktopNumber()

current_window_handle = win32gui.GetForegroundWindow()
pyvda.MoveWindowToDesktopNumber(current_window_handle, 1)

pyvda.GoToDesktopNumber(3)

window_moved_to = pyvda.GetWindowDesktopNumber(current_window_handle)
