Description of WindowSpace 2.5.7
Most organized workspace solution for your desktop
WindowSpace is a powerful desktop enhancement utility for Windows OS. Once installed, it allows you to manipulate windows in many new amazing ways – snap windows to the screen edges and other windows, move and resize them with keyboard shortcuts, maximize vertically or horizontally, pin on top of the other windows, hide from view, minimize to tray, and it’s just the beginning! Whether you have a small or big screen, you know that too many open windows make computation rather awkward – windows overlap each other, hang partway out of sight so that the user can even forget that an application is open. Snapping is an excellent way to keep your desktop organized.
The snapping feature is enabled when you move or resize a window with the mouse.
Once this option is on, windows will snap to each other or to the screen border neatly, edge to edge, rather than block or cover one another completely. You’ll be able to align windows properly without having to reposition them constantly on the desktop, or hunt for the application you need behind other windows.
When you resize a window with the mouse, snapping allows you to quickly make two or more windows the same width or height.
Using this feature you can easily line up misplaced windows to clear up more desktop space. It’ll take you less than a second to set any window to its desired position, and make good use of every single pixel of your workspace. By default, you can resize windows and drag them over the desktop with the mouse. After installing WindowSpace, you’ll be able to do the same by using a set of keyboard shortcuts. This is a great alternative for laptop users and everyone else who likes keeping hands on the keyboard.
The “Maximize Vertically” feature is especially useful for the owners of widescreen monitors. This comes in handy if you want to see the window content with the minimal amount of white space. Also looking at two vertically opened pages sitting next to each other makes things a lot easier to compare, or move content between them. To maximize a window vertically, you should press the default hotkey combination – Alt+F5, or right-click the Maximize title button. The second right-click or hotkey press shrinks the window to its original size. This feature also works for “child” windows, which are correctly maximized inside their MDI parent.
The “Always On Top” option is a real helper when you multitask in several applications. It lets you pin a window on top of the other window and work with them both simultaneously, without the need to jump from one window to another. With this option in place, you can, for example, put a web browser on top of the word processing document and conveniently move data between the two applications.
WindowSpace adds the “Always On Top” option to the window menu. This menu appears when you right-click the window title bar or the application taskbar button.
In just one press of the hotkey, you can tile windows vertically or horizontally, cascade, or close them all. These options work in much the same way as the standard Windows shortcut – Win + D, which minimizes all open windows to the taskbar. To tile windows vertically, for example, you should press Win + V. The first key press arranges all open windows side by side; the second press on the same hotkey brings windows back to their initial positions.
Press Win + Ctrl + Alt + F4 to quickly close all open windows and clean up the desktop workspace for a new task.
