Hi,

GridMove works in Windows 7, but for some applications you may need to set compatibility mode to Windows XP

Thanks!  :Thmbsup: Great to hear that, then I must have done something wrong...

I'd read on Lifhacker that GridMove was a good alternative for xp and vista users who want the docking shortcuts of Windows 7; and therefore I assumed that it din't work because there already was native support.

Greets!

It's also much more full featured than the Windows 7 built-in. In Windows 7, you can only dock a window left and right, that's it. You also can maximize it by docking it at the top, but that's more of an annoyance IMO.
