Window Magician for Mac

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 2, 2013

Those working with multiple programs simultaneously may become frustrated if those windows change location and size each time they are used. Window Magician for Mac enables windows to be locked, but its lack of instructions and complicated steps make it hard to operate.

The free trial version of the program works for 15 days and purchasing a full license requires a $19.95 payment. While the download completed quickly, the program required us to activate certain assisting features in the control panel before startup. There are no user instructions or technical support available. The program's menus are easy to navigate, but actually setting window size is complicated. Users must set window sizes and location by pixel length and width, as well as screen location. A situation or rule must then be attached to the window. This requires some trial and error to get it right, although it does function once set up properly. A program log also shows where the rules are applied for easier editing in the future. It would have been helpful if Window Magician for Mac allowed users to move windows to certain spaces and sizes and set them with a button click, but this did not appear to be available from the menus.

Window Magician for Mac's complex setup makes it useful only for those users who are regularly frustrated at having to work with multiple windows.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Window Magician for Mac 1.0.9.

Developer's Description

Window Magician helps streamline your user experience and optimize your workflow by automatically resizing and repositioning windows. Create "Window Watchers" to individually process windows with specific titles, from specific applications, and of specific types. Ensure all of your Finder windows are positioned tightly in the most top-left corner of the screen. Ensure your web browser windows are always the same size. Automatically reposition Photoshop's default new document window location. Move all modal dialogs to the center of your screen. Window Magician is a small application which can be configured to launch during login, and sits quietly in the menu bar. Take back control of window management today.
