Divvy for Mac is a powerful little app that helps you organize and manage your open desktop windows. Though we needed a little help to get started, it didn't take long for us to get the hang of it and to find the value in having it around.


Record shortcuts: Find yourself using the same window configurations? Make it easier on yourself by using the Shortcuts feature to record and manage specific window positions. From there, you can opt for the shortcut to be either Local, meaning Divvy has to be showing for the shortcut to work, or Global, meaning you can use the shortcut as long as Divvy is running in the background. Either way, it was super helpful to hit a quick key combo to move our active window into position.

Works with multiple monitors: Divvy is up to the task if you work with multiple monitors. The app appears in each monitor, so that you can easily configure windows for each desktop.

Custom grid settings: Though Divvy comes with a default grid setting of six rows by six columns, it allows you to adjust each of the settings to your liking. From the Appearance tab, you can adjust margin and grid settings.


Not immediately intuitive: Though Divvy is incredibly easy to use, it took a video tutorial for us to figure out how to get started. A link is provided in a PDF help file that takes you to the publisher's website where you can find out more about the app.

Bottom Line

We live in a world where multi-tasking is the norm. Divvy is a super-helpful app for organizing and managing all of your windows to keep you productive throughout the day. We highly recommend it for all users.

Divvy is an entirely new way of managing your workspace. It allows you to quickly and efficiently "divvy up" your screen into exact portions. This lets you take maximum advantage of your screen real estate without any hassle at all. Window management has never been this easy. Just remember, Divvy, not Divy.
