Find your windows

runs on Windows

Big displays often mean lots of apps running simultaneously. It's been said that nature abhors a vacuum; I suppose a corollary of that is that large monitors want to be full of stuff. Unfortunately, once you get several windows open on there, it can be a pain in the neck to try to find the one you're really interested in working with. If you find yourself spending too much of your day [Alt] + [Tab]-ing your way around, maybe it's time to get organized.

AquaSnap makes it easy to take control of the real estate on your desktop. Rather than spending a lot of time dragging windows around, and then adjusting sizes with resize handles, you just drag and drop your application windows to the sides or corners of your display, to automatically resize them to half or a quarter of your screen respectively. You can even choose a window to keep always on top. No more hunting for the window you want.

In spite of its "Aqua" name, AquaSnap is a Windows application (Aqua being the name of the user interface used under OS X on Mac). It runs under Win2k and later, including both 32- and 64-bit flavors.

    This app is great. The only problem is that it would not load at startup. It would also not auto load when added to the startup folder. I had to add it to the registry by going to HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and adding a new key with the path to AquaSnap.Daemon.exe in the program folder.
