One of the best new features in Windows7 is Aero Snap. Drag a window to the left or right edge of the screen and it will automatically get docked to that edge and resized to half the screen width. Drag it to the top edge and it will get maximized. Now with WindowSpace from NTWind software you can get Aero Snap on Windows XP and Vista also.
WindowSpace is a fantastic utility that has dozens of awesome productivity enhancing features. Power Users would love all the hotkey combinations that WindowSpace offers. Windows space allows you to move and resize windows with ease using only the keyboard. One of my favourite features are the alternate mouse actions. For e.g. right click on the minimize button to minimize the window to the system tray instead of taskbar. Right clicking on maximize button would lead to the window being maximized vertically while middle clicking on maximize button results in the window being maximized horizontally. Other features include the ability to set transparency for any window, to set any window to appear always on top and to roll-up any window.
WindowSpace is a no-nonsense app that does what it promises. Its light-weight, simple and powerful. They keyboard shortcuts for resizing and docking windows are a boon to every laptop user. Unfortunately it’s not free and a single user license will set you back by $24.90.
