snap-to-side-2Windows 7 has introduced many new window arrangement features such as Aero Snap and Aero Peek. It includes docking windows to the edges of the screen, vertical expand, easy maximize and other enhancements that make it easier to manage multiple windows.

Can’t switch to Windows 7 right now? WindowSpace brings the most outstanding Windows 7 features straight to your Vista or XP desktop. Importantly, WindowSpace not only transfers the new window management functionality to Windows 2000/XP/Vista, but also improves and extends it to provide exceptional productivity on a multi-monitor or big-screen system.

You can use Snap to maximize a window, which makes it easier to focus on that window because of less distraction from other open windows.

Snap to the screen edges
1. Drag the titlebar to move a window
2. Snap window to the screen edges

Once this feature is enabled, windows will snap to each other or to the screen borders neatly, edge to edge, rather than block or cover one another completely. You’ll be able to align windows properly without having to reposition them constantly on the desktop, or hunt for the application you need behind other windows.

When you resize a window with the mouse, snapping allows you to quickly make two or more windows the same width or height.
