Window Snapping Utility

Posted in Tools and Software at Saturday, 04 February 2006 00:24 W. Europe Standard Time

I like having my desktop windows arranged properly, i.e. adjacent to the edge of the screen instead of slightly overlapping the canvas. I've been using WinDock that hooks into Windows to accomplish this behavior for some years.

Today I found a better one! allSnap is even more powerful than the now-retired WinDock, although it leverages the same technique: Besides aligning windows to the screen border it also allows to snap windows to each other. This is especially useful when there are two or more windows and you are comparing or synchronizing content between them. I use it when performing the tedious task of transferring account data (from a browser) to Excel sheets. Yes, this could be automated. Especially since our bank allows CSV export of account statements. It just needs to be done!

Besides that, it's always nice to glue Outlook's reminder window and others to the screen edge without much fiddling around.

Note that allSnap also handles child windows inside a MDI parent.
