No matter what you use your computer for you will undoubtedly spend a great deal of time working with windows - this may be folders you have open to navigate files as well as program windows. When you are working with several programs and folders, it is likely that multiple windows will be open at the same time, and these can quickly become difficult to manage. This is a problem WindowSpace aims to rectify.
The utility brings some of the features of Windows 7 to Windows XP and Vista. For example, to maximise a window, drag it to the top of the screen; to snap it to the side of the desktop, simply drag it to the left or right of the screen. By tiling windows in this way, it is much easier to copy data between programs or copy files between folders.
Individual windows can be configured to always appear on top of others that may be open and can be minimised to the system tray rather than the taskbar to help save space. The option to quickly tile and cascade windows is an added bonus as is excellent support for multiple monitors.
WindowSpace also makes use of keyboard shortcuts and can be configured to snap windows to the edges of other open windows as they are moved. The principle behind the program is very simple, but after spending just a few minutes working with it, you will quickly discover how it can increase productivity and make it easier to work with your computer.
Version 2.5.9 brings:
- Added full support for Windows 8.1 per-monitor DPI settings
- Fixed an issue with snapping when taskbar is placed on top
- Fixed several issues with unusual multi-monitor configurations
Working with multiple windows has never been so easy - bring some of the most useful features of Windows 7 to your computer without the need to upgrade.
