DxWnd lets you run many applications that default to fullscreen in a window, ideal for games. The program is a Win32 "hooker" program that intercepts and alters the behavior of window messages and APIs. It picks up events and injects code into the configured tasks to run fullscreen programs in a windowed environment while maintaining expected behavior.

Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

Nice utility but I wish I never downloaded it because I keep checking the bags and wind up deleting them all the time!There are really a lot of shellbags-everytime you open a folder it creates a bag.HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam -DELETE THE SUBKEYS,bagmru and bags then folders will be reset.Helps if windows does not remember folder settings.

Move Aside Please lets you set a window to stay on top of all others but move out of the way (or go transparent) if you hover the mouse cursor over it. This is ideal for monitoring tools, "post-it"-style notes, and news feeds that you need always visible but not blocking.
