Which functions in our program Actual Window Guard do you use most?

I mainly use the window size and position controls. I have a large (2048x1536) dual-monitor desktop. I want to see all of my open windows without any overlap. With your Actual Window Guard tool, I can get all of them to open their main and subwindows in fixed positions.

With which applications on your PC do you use Actual Window Guard?

I use it with several proprietary Win32 apps that I've written for my work
  • StarOffice,
  • Firefox,
  • my RSS reader,
  • my reference tools (dictionary, encyclopedia)
  • WinTV
  • Winamp
  • and occasionally certain others

Where did you hear about Actual Window Guard?

I found it Googling for "controlling size and position of windows on the desktop". It was the third item on the list. I expect it should make it to number 1 shortly. :-)

You've done a really good thing in making this tool. It's the only one of its kind that I've seen, and I've looked for something like this for over three years (ever since I started working on a large desktop.) And it does exactly what it says it will do, especially with a number of apps whose windowing practices I was never able to control in any other way. Please keep on making this better in all of the suggested ways that you're hearing from other customers.
