WINDOWS - Window Management Utility

This post is about WindowManager by DeskSoft

WindowManager helps you to improve your work flow by remembering and restoring the position and size of your programs and windows. Many programs don't remember their position and size between sessions and even Windows explorer does not always restore windows to their last position. This is where WindowManager steps in and makes sure your windows are placed exactly where you want them every time you open them. WindowManager even allows you to lock the position and size of any window, so that it will always open at the same spot no matter where you move it. The window handling is fully customizable and you can set up special rules for your favorite or most frequently used windows.

Key Features:
  • Remembers and restores the position and size of your recently used windows

  • Supports explorer windows, programs, dialogs, etc.

  • Special rules for moving or sizing only, etc.

  • Ignore list for preventing position or size change

  • Fully customizable

  • Now with full Windows 7 and 64 bit compatibility

Supported operating systems:
  • Windows XP

  • Windows XP x64

  • Windows Vista

  • Windows Vista x64

  • Windows 7

  • Windows 7 x64

  • Windows Server 2003

  • Windows Server 2003 x64

  • Windows Server 2008

  • Windows Server 2008 x64

NOTE: I have tried this utility and found that it interfered with ONE window on my WinXP system. It caused the window to open in the minimized mode EVERY TIME even though the shortcut was set for normal mode. I tested this by disabling the utility, then the window would open as expected. I have removed it from my system. This is by no means saying that other users MAY find the utility works for them, especially if you NEVER use the [Save] option.
