WinMover makes resizing and moving windows easier


We've been playing with an Asus Eee PC for the last few months, and we have to say one of the most useful features on this tiny laptop with a low resolution screen is the fact that you can drag windows by pressing Alt+left click. Since the Eee PC has a non-standard 800 x 480 pixel display, many programs have windows that are too large to fit on the display. Fortunately, you can use the Alt+left click tool to drag them around the screen.

This feature is present in many popular Linux distributions, but if you've got a Windows machine with a low resolution screen, you need a 3rd party applaction like WinMover to achieve the same results. WinMover is a lightweight, customizable app that lets you move windows by clicking anywhere, not just on the top of the window.

You can also resize windows without clicking their edges. Just hit Alt+right click and drag your mouse. Want to save your Alt button for something else? WinMover lets you customize your button combinations for various actions.
