TweakWindow

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This desktop enhancement utility offers some additional ways to manage open windows, though you won't find any other functions here. Just right-click on the target window at the taskbar and choose among the options or use the shortcut icons from the title bar. TweakWindow allows you to take control of open windows by quickly adjusting the transparency or simply hiding it. Its ghost-window feature lets you see two windows at once by slightly minimizing one and making it transparent, yet clickable. The program's roll-up option shrinks windows to their title bar for more screen space. You also can replace the display icon and window title that appear when minimized with a decoy using the chameleon feature. TweakWindow is hot-key accessible and can exclude specified programs from its operations. Though it isn't feature-rich, this 15-day trial application works well for those juggling several windows at a time.
