Blame Atari for it, the desktop doesn't use normal system calls (via trap)
but jumps directly into the routines. So there's no chance for more than
4 windows in desktop except....

Yeah, get WINX 2.0, it offers 40 windows within the desktop, control elements
in all window (not only the topped one). The only problem is that you've got
to copy the whole GEM into the RAM in order to give WINX a chance to patch it.
That shouldn't be a problem on a 4 MByte machine like yours or mine, but the
512 KByte or 1 MByte are going to get some trouble....

1. WINX - still only 4 windows in desktop

Hi,
I am using WINX on my 1040STFM (4MB), TOS 1.4 (or rather 1.04).
I installed it with 16 windows. Works fine with most gem-progs that
use windows, but in the ATARI-DESKTOP I still can open only 4
windows.
I also use TOS1.4-FIX (or however it is called); I first
run WINX, then TOS1.4-FIX as one is told in the readme-file of WINX.

Is everything the way it is supposed to be (still only 4 windows in desktop),
or do I have to change something ?

thanks in advance,
