GridMove tries to make windows management easier by defining a visual grid on your desktop, to which you can easily snap windows. This program comes bundled with some predefined grid templates that can be easily swapped, but also includes ways to create custom grids and share them with others.

Additional features include tools for resizing, displaying windows in cascade or mosaic views, and making a window remain on top, and more.

Created using AutoHotkey.

I've been meaning to try this just so I can emulate the AeroSnap feature from Windows 7 on Windows XP.

This program is amazing. It's the only one I've found so far that actually let's you define a GRID as opposed to merely snapping windows to borders or resizing windows in increments.

So I finally had a chance to test this app.

It takes a tiny bit of effort to learn how to set up grids, but once you have them set up, GridMove really sings. Memory usage is around 2.6 MB RAM.

I'm going to use this in place of Sizer.

An excellent and important utility! Using a different (local) text handler for each and every time we input text is a cognetics nightmare which TEA solves quite neatly within our present architecture.
Note: This utility uses the clipboard to move the completed file back to the original location. Anything already on the clipboard is lost in the process.

This is a great program. When I was using multiple editors to get the best of each (NotePad++, LibreOffice, and Dreamweaver), I used this frequently. Also works well with gpg4usb.

It works well as long as you stick to editing your text and refrain from switching to various other apps - to research something for your text etc.

It seems to rely on Alt-Tabbing back to the previously used window to transport your edited text back to where it belongs. This will only work if you had not switched to other programs in the meantime.

  • renamed "maximum level" to "maximum depth"
  • GraphViz only for "ok" links
  • changed link counting method, now in AddUrl

Comment above is in relation to its portability. The application functions perfect for its purpose...

@billon: awesome news, this program only comes up once in a while but it's a huge help. I was wondering if it worked with newer web linking methods.

Cool program, ugly though. In case you haven't figured out (it took me a while), the textured bar to the left of the text area is what you grab to move the window.

webfork on 2011-04-20 22:14

Every other device (Android, iOS, Mac, etc.) that doesn't have this format calculator just drives me crazy. Writing out the whole problem before calculating is so much better than a single window, single-output view.

ESBCalc (free portable persion) is a good free alternative in my opinion.

Combine this with PopSel and you got a pretty decent file launcher!

Wrong version number... it's V0.97, not 9.7. Fixed, but everything else is the same.
