WorkspaceCover – Hide Your Desktop in Windows

Today, when working from home and online meetings have become an everyday reality, it often happens that we need to share our screen with colleagues. In this case, we always take a bit of care about what is seen on the screen, and many of us simply turn off all programs, except those that are necessary for the meeting. You will agree with us that all this gets extremely tiring after a while.

WorkspaceCover is a free program for Windows 7, 8, 10, and 11 that will allow you to hide all windows except the ones you want to be visible on the screen.

How Does WorkspaceCover Work?

WorkspaceCover is intended for those who frequently attend online meetings where they need to share their screen with colleagues. The program is portable, which means there is no installation and all you need to do is download, unpack, and run it.

WorkspaceCover works on a surprisingly simple principle. When you start the program, your entire screen, except for the taskbar, will be covered by a white area, like an overlay. Now, from the taskbar, you open the window you want to be visible, and all other windows will remain hidden behind the overlay. Right-clicking on the overlay or clicking on the program icon in the System Tray (lower right corner of the screen, next to the clock), opens a context menu with which you manage WorkspaceCover and which contains only a few options.

The first thing you can do is turn on the option that will always keep the overlay on top of all other windows. This way you can be sure that you won’t open a window by mistake. You can also change the color of the overlay, as well as enable the System Tray icon to always be visible.

Unfortunately, WorkspaceCover does not have any additional options. There is no support for a multi-monitor environment, which honestly isn’t that big of a drawback. However, an option that it really lacks is the ability to adjust the size and position of the overlay. As it is, you can only cover the entire screen. It would be much better if we could make a segmented screen, where only certain parts are hidden.

WorkspaceCover Can Be Very Useful, Although It Lacks Some Important Features

WorkspaceCover can be very helpful for those who often share their screen with colleagues. Unfortunately, it lacks certain features to reach its full potential and we hope that the authors will work on this. As it is, its applicability is quite limited. During use, we did not encounter any problems or bugs.
