Editors' reviewIf you want to optimize your desktop's real estate, this program helps by resizing all your PC's open windows so they're viewable at once. WindowSizer couldn't be easier to use; a single click will resize all open windows to fit your screen. With one more click, you can change the view back to normal. You even can design and save customized window configurations for sites you frequently visit. However, beyond its basic functionality, WindowSizer can't really do much, though you can specify preferred window layouts and view the last few windows you were using with a quick click. All told, the utility could make a nice addition for chronic Web surfers who want to keep all their Windows organized.
Work more easily with multiple windows by arranging them in efficient tiled layouts. Double-click the WindowSizer icon in your system tray to arrange all non-minimized open windows or use the Tile Last command to specify exactly how many of your recently used windows to tile. Choose from many default layouts or create your own and set as a default. Resizing a window in your arrangement automatically resizes neighboring windows to maintain a tiled layout. Drag and drop tiled windows to swap positions. Use WindowSizer's right-click menu or keyboard shortcuts to manipulate your windows more efficiently and reduce tedious manual resizing and moving of windows. Close all windows in an arrangement or on the desktop with one command. Bring back the same group of applications or Web sites anytime by saving your arrangements as .panes files. Open several arrangements and manage your virtual desktops with WindowSizer or manage your windows across multiple monitors.
In version 1.5, the Tile Last command now is available for one to twelve windows. Also added are additional rearrangement options for layouts of five to 12 windows.
What's new in this version:
- "Tile Last" command now available for one to twelve windows. -
- Additional re-arrangement options for layouts of five to twelve windows.
- "Tile Horizontal", "Tile Vertical", "Stack All", and "Preferred Layout" commands now work on current arrangement if one exists rather than all open windows.
