I have few desktops active, but I want to close gadget. What would happen?

When MultiDesktop gadget is being closed, all the windows from all the desktops are reunited in the main desktop. You won't loose any window.

I have Multidesktop gadget docked out from the desk-bar,
I created new desktop and the gadget disappeared.
How can I switch desktop? Is my data lost?

No, all your windows are present as the gadget is, although hidden. To bring it to top you can use standard Google Desktop key combination (double SHIFT)

Is there a possibility to switch between desktops using hotkeys?
