Editors' reviewThis program helps users manage and enhance application windows but might require a quick trip to the help file. Actual Window Guard's bland-looking interface has a simple tree listing of predefined Windows rules for different programs, though you can add your own. However, understanding how the process works isn't immediately apparent, so we'd guess most users will want to take a look at the help files. The program lets users modify the size, exact position, title, and appearance of a window and also allows you to add your own captions. Right-clicking in a window gives you a quick option for creating a new rule. Although it's not a necessity and could be more user-friendly, folks who routinely work with a lot of windows might find the program worth the learning curve.
Actual Window Guard keeps your workspace in optimal condition for comfortable work. It has settings helping to organize windows on the desktop and keep them in the order you prefer. You don't have to spend time resizing and positioning windows as it will be done automatically. The tool supports multi-monitor systems allowing you automatically place particular windows to required monitor and specify window dimensions as per cent values of current monitor's resolution.
