Limit Windows Freedom, Not Yours With Actual Window Manager 4.2!

Actual Tools, the innovator in desktop enhancement technologies, announces today the release of Actual Window Manager 4.2. This is the newest version of a desktop-enhancement suite that enables users to organize the workspace of the desktop in a more user friendly way.

This release introduces two new options: windows placement restrictions and enhanced support for document-oriented applications, such as Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Internet Explorer. Users will be able to multitask more conveniently with documents, tables, and sites.

The work of the windows placement restrictions is based on the following principle: the user specifies a rectangular area, within which a window may be moved but not go beyond its boarders. The restrictions may be set up for all windows or a particular one.

Example of using the placement restrictions

In case of necessity, the restrictions may be disabled on the fly, which gives an opportunity to move a window to any place of the desktop in accordance with the demands of a concrete situation. When the restrictions are enabled, the window will occupy the allowed area automatically. Some of the examples for the use of this option are as follows:

  1. You can use the restrictions option to define a vertical column on the desktop that will contain all available shortcuts by specifying restrictions for all windows.

    Defining the special area on the desktop for important shortcuts

  2. You can specify separate non-overlapping areas for the windows of contact-lists of various instant messengers, such as MSN, ICQ, or AIM.

    Defining separated areas for instant messengers' windows

Another novelty in Actual Window Manager is support for document-oriented applications. This option allows you to configure specific settings not only for application windows, but for the windows with particular documents by the window title. Thanks to this, users, who work daily with a constant set of sites, may place the Internet Explorer window with a particular site into a definite place on the desktop automatically. This option is great for organizing the desktop into the familiar workspace. Coupled with the restrictions option, it can keep the chosen desktop pattern automatically by restricting undesirable movements of windows on the desktop.

Actual Window Manager 4.2 provides an excellent opportunity to organize and keep a strict and clear workspace structure of the desktop. The software will benefit a wide spectrum of customers, including both home and corporate users. It will help organize workplaces in call centers, network operations centers, trading companies, stock exchanges and banks.
