Frequently developers write software for (their) larger monitor and essentially break it for the rest of us. With this in mind, a developer friend of mine asked me for something to help him quickly adjust windows to 1024x768, 800x600, 640x480, etc. and avoid this. The best one I found so far is not portable: Sizer
. The application should also be able to do customized resolutions for small screens like PDAs and cell phones.
Anyone have ideas or suggestions?Research
My search results with programs here on the site were mixed. This program is supposed to do exactly this is SecondShell
), but I was unable to get this to work. I was really surprised Dexpot
didn't have a window resize feature that would do this since it seems to do almost everything else. Many programs such as NiftyWindows
claim to do this but require the NumPad, which I don't have. Freewaregenius mentions DM2
under the "Sizer" entry, but I couldn't figure this one out.
Disclaimer: Multiple programs I tested seemed not to function as advertised, but its possible the multiple window tweaking programs started interfering with each other even when I closed them. I plan to go back and retest them individually.
