Multi-Monitor Gaming

Gamers will appreciate several features of Actual Window Manager that were developed specifically for enhancing multi-monitor gaming experience, making it more attractive and convenient:

  • Ignore Deactivation - prevents the game from being minimized when you switch to another application

  • Lock Mouse - locks the mouse pointer in a specific window or monitor preventing it from leaving a game

  • and many others


Desktop Divider

The divider allows you to split the entire large desktop or each monitor into several non-intersecting areas (tiles). If you place a window into one of such tiles, the window will expand up to tile’s borders only. You can create as many custom tile layouts as you need and activate them on the fly, as circumstances require.

Improved Windows Folder Navigation

Actual Window Manager allows the use of two additional title buttons for each window. These special buttons improve Windows Folder Navigation, so you do not need to use long mouse manipulation to follow through to the desired folder.

  • Recent Folders

  • Favorite Folders


Desktop Mirroring

Mirroring is a special function that allows observing a certain window, monitor or a custom part of desktop in a separate window on another monitor. It can be useful in various specific situations:
  • you need to clone the primary displays to two or more additional monitors

  • you need to control what happens on another display but it's out of your sight (monitor turned to a client, TV in another room, etc.)

  • when you give a report or presentation, you can work with materials on your main display, mirroring its necessary part only onto the projector for your listeners


Window Snapping

If you prefer arrange your windows manually, Actual Window Manager will help you make it faster and more accurate by snapping a certain edge of the dragged window to:
  • desktop or monitor boundaries

  • other windows (both from inside and outside)

  • custom virtual grid with a defined cell size

Also, you will get an improved version of the Windows 7 Aero Snap feature: now it works on edges between monitors.

  • Single picture stretched over the entire desktop

  • Individual picture on each monitor

  • Individual slideshow running separately on each monitor

  • stretch any screen saver over the entire desktop

  • put individual screen saver onto each monitor
