Introduction

How frequently do you change window sizes? Most PC users do it many times a day when working on a PC: increasing the size of a video player window to fit the video resolution, slightly increasing a data window to see the entire content without scrolling, decreasing a window’s size to hide empty space, decreasing/increasing the size of windows to comfortably place them on the desktop, etc. Performing any of the above actions will not take a lot of time per se, however, performing these actions collectively takes up a significant amount of your time and attention.


2. Resize Button

All manual actions to change the size of windows can be replaced by a single click. Actual Window Manager offers you the option to use an additional title button, called Resize. You can resize a window in one click using this button.

To add the Resize button to the title bar of each window, open the configuration window of Actual Window Manager, and follow to the Window Settings -> Default Settings ->Title Buttons tab. Then find the Resize button and check the box. Set the size for default resizing (pixels or percent) and save settings.


The resize button works in two modes:

  1. Resize the window to the default size (which you set in the configuration window) using a left click.
  2. Resize the window to a custom size or preset size from a list using a right click.


3. Desktop Divider

Actual Window Manager also offers a feature called Desktop Divider. This feature allows you to place windows structured in special non-interlacing areas on the desktop. Any window will automatically resize to the size of the area, in which it is placed.

You can read more about this feature in the 'Split the Windows Desktop' article.

Use the above features to save your time and make your working area more convenient. Moreover, Actual Window Manager contains many other features to make your Windows PC perform at its best.
