Microsoft Word is a powerful, many-sided and the most wide-spread computer application in the world which has let many generations of PC users write, read and edit different types of information, insert tables and charts into files along making a lot of other useful operations.

Although the latest versions of the application (Microsoft Word 2000, 2003, 2007) present the most useful functions, there is no limit in striving for perfection. Today we would like to offer you Actual Window Manager - the program that can become extremely necessary for users who try to achieve better results in computer operating efficiency and increase the speed of their work. Actual Window Manager presents a great variety of functions for working with Microsoft Word. By using them, you will be able to decrease the time you usually waste on switching between windows of different documents, keep your desktop in order and work much quicker.

With Actual Window Manager you can add new Minimize-to-Tray button Minimize Alternatively, Stay-on-Top button Stay Always-on-Top, Rollup button Roll up, Make Transparent button Make Transparent and other additional buttons to any window's title bar. You will be able to minimize any window to tray, automatically close annoying windows, maximize certain windows or minimize them at startup, save and restore any window's size and position and much more...

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

Keep Microsoft Word Always-On-Top

The Stay Always-on-Top tool lets you put Microsoft Word on top of other windows. If you want to remain Microsoft Word always visible (if you are working with several applications simultaneously), activate the function. Place your Microsoft Word document on top of any application to observe all information contained in it. In such a way you can make any changes easily and quickly, and it will be of great benefit to you because there will be no necessity in spending time saving and restoring the Microsoft Word window. It is especially useful if you need to drag-n-drop something to your Microsoft Word document.

Another way we recommend to quickly insert some information into the Microsoft Word document from any external source ( Internet browser, message window etc.) is using Copy to Clipboard/Paste from Clipboard buttons: switch to a source window, select the desired information, click the CopyToClipboard button Copy to Clipboard button, switch back to your Microsoft Word window, and click the PasteFromClipboard button Paste from Clipboard button. Using these buttons to operate with Windows® clipboard is far more quicker than using the commands of the same name in window's Edit main menu, especially when using such alternative input device as touch screen (for example, on Tablet PC).

New Advanced Ways of Keeping Currently Unused Microsoft Word

If during reading or working with documents in Microsoft Word you have ever met with a situation when some urgent and pressing affairs happen and you have to delay your work, you know how unpleasant it can be. You must come back to the document later but while looking for the place where you've stopped you lose your time. However, there is a way how to sort out this problem. Actual Window Manager presents you several options to do it in the most advanced ways:

  • SendToBottom button Send to Bottom button lets you put the foreground Microsoft Word window under all currently opened windows without closing it and maintaining its original size and position. It's like moving a playing card from the top of the deck to its bottom.
  • Rollup button Roll Up button lets you minimize Microsoft Word in such a way that only its title bar remains visible. This is better than minimizing it to an icon because you won't have to hunt for the windows you were using!
  • Minimize-to-Tray button Minimize Alternatively button lets you save the taskbar space by hiding Microsoft Word to tray or to virtually any place on your desktop. Just click the button - and the message window will be minimized to a small icon. Click this icon - and window is back and ready to use!
  • MoveTo Monitor button Move to monitor button is useful for placing Microsoft Word to the desired monitor if you have several monitors connected to your computer. Just click it, and window will move to the next monitor. In other words, a window displayed on Monitor 1 will move to Monitor 2. No need to drag it manually to free the desktop space!

All the described actions are also accessible via corresponding options in the standard Windows context menu (click the Microsoft Word icon) or a hotkey, which you can assign to different actions yourself or use default ones. Moreover, all the features can be triggered automatically when Microsoft Word becomes inactive or at its startup.

Maximize Microsoft Word Automatically When It Starts

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 Microsoft Word to start full screen.

Actual Window Manager will help you to eliminate this pesky handicap. It can automate the start process of your text processor, so that you won't have to make extra clicks every time it starts. With Actual Window Manager, you can easily control the size of Microsoft Word: now it will always be opened full screen and ready for your work.

Make Microsoft Word Transparent

Transparent Window is a new approach to desktop space organization. Windows® is multifunctional and sometimes we work with several different applications. While typing something in Microsoft Word, you need for example, to follow information in an Internet browser.

Just click the Make Transparent button Make transparent title button or choose the Transparency window menu item or use a hotkey (Win-T, by default) and the window will become transparent thus enabling you to view an application window beneath Microsoft Word. This will help you by immediately showing which windows are opened now, and where they are. 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 Microsoft Word and different actions.
