Actual Tools, the world's leading innovator in desktop enhancement technologies, today announced the introduction of the Resize Window tool which will expand the much requested toolkit of over 40 groundbreaking window navigation controls in Actual Window Manager 3.0.

Resize Window control seamlessly integrates into the window navigation system in Windows and allows resizing any application window on the fly via a Windows-style title bar button sitting next to the standard Minimize/Restore/Close buttons. The Resize button can be added to any singular or all windows in the system.

With the Resize Window control, users will be able to automatically change the size of any window simply by left-clicking on the Resize title button. Right-clicking on the same button, they can access the drop-down menu and select any preset window size including 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, 100%x100%, 50%x50%, 0%x100%, etc. What's more, users can even input their own width and height and the current window will instantly take the desired size.

The new window control will be especially beneficial for web designers, program developers and web publishers who need to test the look of their site at different resolutions. With Resize control, our clients will change resolution in one click without having to endlessly ramble through numerous windows and menus. As the new control is desktop-friendly, users won't have to restore icon layout which gets ruined each time they switch to another resolution mode. Here is what Bill Friedrich, our client from Germany, says about Resize Window:

"I'm a developer and I try to develop all my products so that the windows look good at different resolutions" says Bill Friedrich, our client from Germany. My problem was that my development environment is 1280x1024, so I needed to manually resize windows at runtime to see how they would look at different resolutions. In the past I used to draw little markings on my desktop background image to indicate the 800x600 and 1024x768 positions. Then I could manually resize them by using the markings as guides. Now, instead, your program makes it a one-click affair - very nice!"

Resize Window belongs to the family of over 40 alternative window navigation tools coming in Actual Window Manager 3.0. This program enhances standard window navigation system and enables users to make any window transparent, put it on top, roll it up or unroll it, minimize any application to the system tray or screen edge, automatically position any window on the desktop, etc.

The application runs under Windows 95/98/Me/2000/XP/2003 and costs $ US. The evaluation version of Actual Window Manager 3.0, hosting all registered version features, can be downloaded for free at
