  • Released on 17 Jul 2020

AutoHotkey is a powerful automation and scripting tool with an option to export to a self-contained executable. Possible uses include assigning the hotkey "Ctrl-Alt-F" to launch Firefox, making abbreviations expand to their full definition as you type them, or saving time by setting the computer to auto-click a confirmation screen.

The program can create entire applications and has been used to create many hosted here on PortableFreeware including 7plus, WallPaper Randomizer, Gridy and many more.

Note: Pulover's Macro Creator can be used as a macro recorder and includes an "Export to AHK" function.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but if you download the installer and extract, you get all the exes (32/64 unicode and ansi), Window Spy, the help chm, a template and the ahk2exe compiler.

Download link broken...

I strongly suppose that, every time you enter a search, this program will connect not only to the Longman database but will also establish connections either to Google or Amazon (the two biggest tracking firms this poor, abused globe has ever seen). The website with the pure online version doesn't even load if I block Amazon. If someone else tests it and finds out that it doesn't connect either to Google or Amazon, I will download it. :-)

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.

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

shnbwmn on 2016-01-08 00:11

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.

freakazoid on 2016-05-11 04:27

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.

Gridy v0.70

Checker on 22 Nov 2015
  • 825KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Nov 2015
  • Suggested by modussn

Gridy adds an invisible grid on your desktop so that any window you move or resize is snapped to it. This helps maximize screen real estate by making windows placed adjacent to each other dynamically adjust to avoid overlapping.

Snapping to the grid is enabled with mouse drag or keyboard arrow keys. Gridy also lets you store and restore a window's size and position in up to 9 slots. This is useful for quickly arranging your windows in a convenient way. In addition, you can hide the window's Alt-Tab icon, and set any window semi-transparent or to "Always on Top."

Just upgraded from a 19" 1280x1024 to a 24" 1920x1200 monitor, and 'side by side' or 'stacked' just didn't cut it any more! A brilliant app, easy to get the hang of, I have my standard workspace of one main and three minor windows at my command. Thanks!

AdrianK_IT on 2015-01-18 17:31

V0.60 (the .exe file is a puzzling 4x the size of v0.50) just doesn't work on my PC. Reverted to v0.50.
