Win11 desktop switch animations fix/workaround

Copper Contributor

Hi everyone,

 

The removal of the slide animations when switching between desktops really bothered me, without the context of the animations its hard to keep track of which desktop you're on. So I made a small tool that abuses the touch injection API to simulate a swipe instead of using the regular desktop switch. This basically brings back the desktop animations. It really helped me so i thought I'll share it here in case anyone else wants it.

Note, as of now. You will have to build it yourself, this is because the publish in visual studio is failing on me, so I'm unable to release a contained exe.
