WinSplit Revolution allows you to easily organize windows by tiling, resizing and positioning them to make the best use of your desktop real estate. The program is especially useful for larger resolution screens by helping you efficiently manage multiple active windows. The program allows users to move windows and have them snap into pre-defined areas such as 1/2 or 1/4 of the screen using simple keyboard hotkeys.

Functional on 64-bit.

Note that the program is no longer in development -- linking to and softpedia mirrors.

License: Freeware
How to extract:

What's new? 12/04/2011 v11.04
  • Bug Fix : The settings (including the VirtualNumpad position and style) were not saved when WinSplit was closed by the end of the user's session.
  • Improvement : The installer and uninstaller language will now be set automatically, regarding the system's language. The registry keys created by the previous installers has been removed, so the "portable mode" won't touch anything in the registry.
  • Bug Fix : The update and/or uninstall process fails because of a dll file that can't be replaced. People will probably still encounter problems to update to this release. If so, there is now a "Cleanup Tool" available in the download page.
  • Bug Fix : The message "Impossible to install hooks" was often shown at WinSplit startup, and the checkbox saying "Do not display this message anymore" wasn't working as expected

03/14/2011 v 11.03

  • Bug Fix : The VirtualNumpad position was not correctly saved in some cases.
  • Bug Fix : A message was shown (Problem to enumerate all screens) and the "Send to left/right screen" action cancelled if some "invisible mirrored monitors" are installed. Now, only real monitors are taken into account.
  • Bug Fix : When launched at Windows startup, messages for communication between the hook system and the main application could not be delivered "in time", so WinSplit thought that there was a problem and was displaying an error message.
  • New translations : russian
  • Bug Fix : The screenshots folder could not be created under Windows 7 (and probably under windows Vista)
  • New : the errors messages saying that hooks were impossible to install can now be desactivated
  • Bug fix : the automatic update process could not be launched because of UAC : you'll still have to do the next update manually on some system (Windows Vista and 7)
  • Bug fix : the Drag'n'Go functionnality was started even if the corresponding option was unchecked

After using the various tools in Win 7 that handle window position, I got very homesick for this great tool. Even better, it works right alongside Win 7's tool set. Awesome.

Although the method of creating a predefined area is very good, I prefer the usability of Gridmove (mainly the mouse control with trigger locations) I think that either the author of winsplit needs to try adding mouse control, like gridmove, or the author of gridmove needs to make the creation of grids simpler, like winsplit.

this tiny program rocks!
this is one of those little programs that you just 'install' them and start using them without being aware they are there,
I'm constantly moving my windows to left or right just as often as I do min and max them,
and its just ctl-alt-left, ctl-alt-right, so easy

@Scott, you are comparing apples and pencils

@Scott QT Tab Bar is great, but you're comparing apples and oranges, as this program serves an entirely different purpose.

You think this is good?

Nothing compares to QT Tab Bar!

A tabbed windows explorer with launcher, folder bookmarks and more!!!

Easy and works - great program, also on small screens: I can now use a netbook/ teamviewer to monitor/ assist several pcs around the house. The reg file isn't generated if you just copy the installed files to another pc.

Ideal for large screens but some advantages for small screens too when taking notes and referencing multiple windows. Hold down the left mouse button and drag a window around the screen while holding ALT+CTRL. After I used this, other computers seemed outdated.
