Start64!WindowSpace is a desktop enhancement utility for Windows OS. Once installed, it allows you to manipulate windows in many new amazing ways – snap windows to screen edges or other windows, move and resize windows with the keyboard, maximize vertically or horizontally, pin windows on top, minimize them to tray, and it’s just the beginning!

Most of the actions can be triggered with the hotkeys, some by selecting the corresponding options from the window menu. New window actions give extra comfort to the owners of large monitors, widescreens, multi-monitor systems, and the users who have to multitask in many applications but have a limited desktop space.

Main Features

Below is a short overview of the most important features that will help you change your computational habits for better and improve your multitasking productivity.

  • Snap windows to edges & other windows – 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. 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.

  • Move and resize windows with the keyboard – 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. By pressing the Win + Arrow Keys, you can move the window to the left, right, up, down. Pressing the Win + Ctrl + Arrow Key snaps the window instantly to any of the four boarders of the desktop. To resize the window horizontally or vertically, press the Win + Alt + Arrow keys until the desired window size is achieved.

  • Maximize windows vertically or horizontally – Using these options, you can maximize a window vertically or horizontally, rather than open the entire window wide-screen. The “Maximize Vertically” option is especially useful for the owners of widescreen monitors. Sometimes it’s not necessary to open the window full-screen because the width of the screen is too large for the task (for example, when you want to view a list of files in Windows Explorer, a long Word document, or a web-page with fixed width). In this case, you can maximize a window vertically and see the information you need without being distracted by the white empty spaces when you maximize the entire window.

  • Set windows ‘Always On Top’ – 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 without the need to jump from one window to another. With this option in place, you can, for example, put a word processing document on top of the spreadsheet and conveniently move data between the two applications.

  • Minimize To Tray + Hide Window – These two options are clever alternatives to standard Windows minimization. By default, when you click the “Minimize” button, the window jumps to the taskbar. The taskbar is fine for a few windows. But if you open many of them, it becomes cluttered, making it difficult to find a window. With WindowSpace, you’ll get two amazing ways to get rid of this problem. Simply minimize a window to the tray or hide it from view. Minimization to tray is helpful when you want some applications – Outlook Express, Internet Explorer, Firefox – to run in the background and keep the taskbar free for more important programs. The “Hide Window” feature will benefit those who need to hide a document, MySpace page, photo album, or instant messenger quickly when someone – your boss or parent – comes into the room to check what’s going on.

  • Cascade, tile and close all windows – By default, there is only one standard Windows hotkey to manage all desktop windows – Win+D, which minimizes all windows to the taskbar and shows the desktop. WindowSpace gives you new actions to manage windows with the keyboard. 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 key combination Win+D. For example, when you hit Win+V to tile windows vertically: the first key press arranges all open windows side-by-side; the second press on the same hotkey sends windows back to their initial positions.

  • New options in window menu – Each window has a menu that can be opened with the right-click on the window icon. After the installation of WindowSpace, the list of the menu items is expanded with the new options: “Always On Top”, “Minimize To Tray”, and “Hide Window”. The availability and position of these options in the menu can be customized in the WindowSpace Settings dialog.

  • Re-program window title buttons – By default, each window has tree title buttons – “Minimize”, “Maximize” and “Close”. With WindowSpace, you can add new actions to the buttons and then trigger them with a right-click or a middle-click. The buttons can be easily re-programmed in the WindowSpace Settings dialog.

WindowSpace doesn’t promise a revolution on your desktop but it does change your computational habits, providing more freedom and comfort in manipulating windows and organizing the desktop for convenient work. Whether you have a big or small screen, you should definitely try out WindowSpace. After several days, you’ll be amazed how you got by without it.

System Requirements: WindowSpace runs under Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista and newer operating systems. There is also a native 64-bit version available for download. The program integrates into Windows natively and runs without any compatibility issues.
