Actual Window Manager claims to make your desktop more fun and easier to use,so it has a lot to live up to. I downloaded the program, installed it and was presented with a dialog box in which everything was set up for me.


After a few minutes I was soon making the windows transparent and manipulating them using the many functions of Actual Window Manager such as the Roll Up, Minimizer and Stay on Top. The window options are easily customized and I can honestly say that Actual Window Manager more than lived up to my expectations.

"great benefit"

The Transparency Effect and the option to keep the documentation on top is of great benefit. Also the added bonus of being able to create an icon in the system tray is a noteworthy addition.

I do feel however that the lack of tooltips on the control box is an omission. To be fair though everything is set up for you on installation. Apart from adjusting the Transparency effect to suit your own needs there is not a lot for you to do.

"attractive features"

Actual Window Manager has many attractive features to recommend it and is certainly worth the asking price. I cannot praise it highly enough.
