People use it everywhere, in office and at home, to access the Internet and get information, chat with people, do online shopping, etc. It has a seamless integration with Windows®, a great compatibility with almost all websites and most support from third party plug-in modules and applications.

But let us return to the point and see how Actual Window Manager can improve our Internet Explorer.

Improve Your Work With Internet Explorer using Actual Window Manager

  1. Maximize Internet Explorer When It Starts Automatically

  2. It is very convenient to work with a program when it is maximized. But sometimes a program opens not full screen and a user should draw his attention away from some important idea to click the mouse to maximize that window. It is really a handicap when you need Internet Explorer to start full screen.

    Actual Window Manager will help you to eliminate this handicap. It can automate the start process of your IE browser, so that you won't have to make extra clicks every time it starts. And it's not only with IE. With Actual Window Manager, you can easily control the size and position of Internet Explorer windows thus making them servr you better.

    We all have different tastes, different resolutions and different monitors. You begin to realize this when developing a website. When everything is ready, you need to test your website at different resolutions because what looks nice at 800*600 may be a confusion of pictures and text at 1280*768. With Actual Window Manager you can resize your window in virtually one click on the ResizeWindow button Resize button. Want to know how?

  3. Minimize Internet Explorer to Tray

  4. Unlike Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer misses out on a tabbed multiple-site windows feature. This is why, when surfing Internet, we open several IE windows and minimize all them to the taskbar. Consequently, it is rather difficult to find a necessary one. We can solve this problem by minimizing some IE windows to the system tray in order to save some space in the taskbar. And when you need these minimized windows again, you can simply open them with a single mouse click.

    If you often open several windows simultaneously and keep an eye on the refreshment of information in them, you can also minimize them to tray to avoid closing by mistake. And when this information is required again, you can open these windows and see what has changed. If you are interested in the latest news or wait for an answer in forum or eager to know the refreshment of quotations of rate, Actual Window Manager will not let you miss anything.

    You can also minimize Internet Explorer into a small icon, which is placed on the screen. You can drag this icon anywhere on the screen and choose its position and size. If you then double-click it, the default action is to restore the normal window and remove the icon from the desktop/screen.

    Actual Window Manager is the easiest, most comprehensive way for the Minimize to Tray action. This is an ideal solution for any e-mail client, audio player or any other program running in the background that you don't want to close.

  5. Keep Internet Explorer Always-On-Top

  6. Sometimes we need to see an IE window with constantly refreshing information while working with other applications. With Actual Window Manager you can simply put your Internet Explorer window on top of other currently opened windows thus avoiding distractions caused by them. It can be useful when working with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word: while you are typing something in MS Word, you can compare information in two windows.

    And that is not all! if you need to copy some information from Internet Explorer to Notepad or any other text editor the Copy to clipboard CopyToClipboard button and Paste from clipboard PasteFromClipboard button extra buttons might be especially useful: they are really a great alternative to the standard Windows methods of copy pasting via window menu and Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V hotkeys.

  7. Make Internet Explorer Transparent

  8. Transparency Effect is a new approach to desktop space organization. Windows® is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While surfing the Web you need for example, just to have a look on some information in other applications. Just click on the Make Transparent button Make Transparent title button, push Win+T or choose the corresponding window menu command and Internet Explorer will become transparent. You can also change the default Windows® titlebar double-click behavior, from Resize to full screen to Make transparent. Varying from 0% (opaque) to 100% (invisible), individual transparency settings can be configured for different states of Internet Explorer windows. So, you will solve your task easily, without useless clicks.

  9. Roll Up\Unroll Internet Explorer

  10. If you often write letters or articles based on some information from the Internet, the Roll up function will be your mate. It can reduce Internet Explorer or any other window in such a way that only its title bar will be visible.

    The fastest and the most convenient way to activate this function is to click additional Rollup button Roll up title button: simply press it and Internet Explorer will be reduced so only its title bar will be visible (and the Roll up button will be turned to Unroll button Unroll). Now you can work with the text of your article and then restore the required data in the Web by clicking Unroll button. Roll up action can be also easily launched via window menu item, if you wish. Those who prefer hotkeys to tedious mouse-clicking can create a shortcut or use a default one (Win+ ,)

    If you don't want to click any buttons at all to apply Roll up function, you can teach your computer perform it automatically! For example, if you don't want to close Internet Explorer but need to work with other applications, you can teach your computer to roll up Internet Explorer when it becomes inactive, i.e. when you switch to other windows. In order not to lose it from sight we recommend you to use the Stay Always-on-Top add-in for the Roll up function. If you need to have a look at Internet Explorer just to have a look to some information, you can simply hover a mouse pointer over its title bar and it will be temporarily unrolled so you can easily view its contents. Then just move mouse pointer out of Internet Explorer window and it will be rolled up back automatically so you can continue your work with other programs.
