Can I make my desktop a window?

I have a Big-Ass Monitor, and the desktop stretches across the entire thing, like you would expect it to.
I'm trying to make the desktop act like a window that I can resize and move.
I also want to leave the rest of the monitor active so I can launch games full screen, or if I need the extra acreage, I can simply drag things into the empty areas without screwing around changing resolutions.

I tried using virtual desktops, but wasn't able to achieve the desired results.

Any thoughts?
TIA.

Start a VNC server on your computer and connect to it locally, that way you can have a copy of your desktop in a window you can move and resize. You will of course still have the regular desktop on the background.
