BetterDesktopTool - Mac-like window features

#1 Post by webfork » Mon Apr 27, 2020 5:52 pm

I'm not very fond of the website description so I'm borrowing from Softpedia: ... Tool.shtml
BetterDesktopTool is a handy and reliable utility designed to assist you in creating non-overlapping layouts from your multiple applications' windows.

This tool can prove particularly useful if you often need to work with several windows at the same time, requiring information from various sources simultaneously.

Normally, you would have to switch back and forth between all these applications, wasting time and possibly even losing bits of information in the process.

With BetterDesktopTool, you can set various keyboard shortcuts, mouse movements and hot corner options, enabling you to 'Show all Windows', 'Show Foreground App Window' or 'Show Desktop' in a variety of ways, saving you a lot of time. You can also create similar hotkeys to 'Show Non-Minimized' as well as 'Minimized Windows'.

Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 (32/64 Bit), Windows 7 SP1 (32/64 Bit), Windows 8 (32/64 Bit), Windows 10 (32/64 Bit).
Windows Aero Glass and sufficient Graphics Card.
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (Usually installed by automatic Updates on all Systems).
License: Liteware



Steps: Download the installer and run uniextract.

Status: Not portable - HKCU\Software\BetterDesktopTool and in LocalAppData user.config
