Windows 7 came with lots and lots of new features which were not present in the earlier versions of Windows. Although, many of these features are used by all the users but some of these features are used only for special purpose and by a special set of people. One of such feature which Windows 7 has is Aero Snap feature which has been incorporated with the operating system to quickly adjust two opened application windows on the screen. Today we will introduce a new application which will let you move program windows sensing other application window on desktop. Although, it doesn’t automatically move them when you drag an application window, rather you need to manually do that.
So, in order to overcome this issue users may use any of the available third-party application windows adjustment utilities. We have already discussed some of these utilities such as Asus Multiframe Utility and WinSplit Revolution which can serve the user with the same purpose. Along with these utilities there are many more such as Windy etc., which can be used to quickly arrange opened windows on screen. But the one that we are going to discuss today is much better than the ones discussed above and has several features which makes it a unique and distinct utility for sure.
Desktop Slider is basically a small, easy to use, useful and a freely available utility which has been built to slide opened windows across the screen which we have already discussed. It not only allows you to focus on currently active window but also allows you to snap them to screen borders. As, we have already said that it is a unique utility and the fact which makes it unique from other application window managers is its ability to create infinite workspaces which comes with no other utility.
You just need to select the window whichever you want to modify and then simply drag it across the screen in order to start working on other applications. After this you may observe that you can view all the open windows or select only active one using a hotkey combination selected according to your choice. Along with all these features, it also let you hide the application windows. In fact, using the slider feature, you can keep selected application windows at required side of the screen and focus on only important ones based on your need and requirements.
Desktop Slider is a portable application and can be easily downloaded from the link given at the end of this article and can be easily installed too. This utility operates from system tray and you may observe that it registers mouse middle-click to slide the active window. If you want to change this control then you may do it anytime and may assign left button, right button with Shift and Control key to trigger the window slider feature, based on your choice.
Below given video will surely give you a better picture of how to use this utility.
Overall we can say that Desktop Slider is a neat, little application window slider that allows you to create multiple workspaces to efficiently manage all opened windows and that too at the same time. So, if you are interested then you may download it and explore its features.
