File / Project / Workspace Management

I’m looking for a piece of software for Windows (Vista) giving me either multiple (virtual) desktop windows, or the ability to treat the contents of a folder like the desktop.

Basically I have some folders I’m using as a dumping ground for storing work in progress, but want to be able to group / arrange things in a way which makes sense to me. I can do this using a standard folder by turning off auto arrange and using largeish icons but this has 2 problems. Firstly if I slip and change the view mode then my arranging is discarded, and secondly the ‘Window’ is basically a standard explorer window, so it has the navigation pane on the left hand side – which I don’t want/need. Again, I realise I can toggle this manually, but I don’t want to have to.

The obvious question is “Use the desktop”. But I don’t like having a cluttered desktop – it drives me insane, so that’s simply not an option.

Suggestions? Thoughts? Especially keen to hear from anyone else who has ever wanted something similar.
