Max Window size
« on: August 14, 2007, 03:46:03 PM »
Hello, I am looking for an app, which can set/limit the window size (maximized),
because I use a small tool (Thumbwin) to display the open windows as Thumbs on the bottom of the desktop.

Hawkeye ShellInit margins dont work, because Thumbwin relocates itself like the windows, too.
Thanx for any help. :)

you can use Skrommel's WinWarden which has the ability to monitor windows and resize (and reposition) them.. :Thmbsup:

AutoSizer is also very good.

@lanux128
Hm, interesting tool, but its a little bit hard to set up parameters for all windows... I am using/will use. It would be easier, if the tool set/limit the vertical Maximizing size (bottom offset) for all windows.

@Nighted
I dont see an option to set a limit for window size.

@jgpaiva
I tested it before, but Thumbwin relocates itself at the new bottom margin, thats why I am searching for a tool, which limits the window (maximized)  size and not the desktop margin.

Nope, I am German/Russian.


Thanx for help!

having seen ThumbWin's abilities, there is another program that has a unique minimising feature - DM2's floating icon. there is also a review here at DC forums.. :)

The page is in Japanese but the program comes with an English language file.

Yes, i tried the program after i posted that :)

It's actually pretty good, but it wouldn't work properly with XYplorer, and only shows thumbnails when the program is minimized, in a similar way as the apple dock does.

The abilities of ThumbWin are exactly, what I want.
DM2 is more a lite version with system tray abilities etc.

By the way I found Thumbwin at this site (with some other special tools):

 ;D ;D I should have thought of that...
It isn't as handy as what you asked for, but sure can solve your problem :)
That's the reason why Nighted suggested autosize, it looks like a similar software.
