Actual Window Menu Full Changelog

How to Upgrade

[!] Important
[+] New
[-] Fixed error
[*] Changes

Actual Window Menu 8.9 (22.07.2016)
[+] The ability is added to invoke advanced window action dialogs for
    a currently active window via hotkeys. The following hotkeys have been

    - Show the "Move to specific monitor" dialog      (Win-Ctrl-/)
    - Show the "Maximize to selected monitors" dialog (Win-Ctrl-Num*)

    You can change the default key combinations in the Hotkeys-Actions panel.

    This feature can be useful on monitors with high resolutions (up to 4K)
    where distance to a required window title bar may be too long to drag
    the mouse there just to invoke the dialog via right click. Using the hotkeys
    above will make the dialogs appear exactly under the mouse pointer,
    ready for immediate use.

[+] The CFL command line switch is expanded with the ability to specify
    an arbitrary folder where the configuration files should be stored:

    ActualWindowMenuCenter.exe CFL "<full_path_to_the_folder>"

[*] Overall stability is improved.

[*] Proper scaling in high DPI resolutions has been finally implemented for:

    - Log window

    - AltMinimize floating screen preview

[*] Evaluation dialog has been restyled.

    program dialogs (About, Register, Check for Updates, Quick Settings, etc.).

       hints are ignored at the moment for the sake of search speed)
