FreeSnap v.1.5


Ever try to size a window so it just touches the edge of the screen? Itls tedious (at least for me). FreeSnap allows you to instantly resize any window edge to the corresponding screen edge. Want that window to touch the right edge of the screen? Press and hold the left oWindows Keyo (see illustration below) and press the right arrow. Itls just that simple. The number-pad keys work as well, regardless of the NumLock state.Thus, the window sizing keys are:Windows Key + Up Arrow snap top window edgeWindows Key + Down Arrow snap bottom window edgeWindows Key + Left Arrow snap left window edgeWindows Key + Right Arrow snap right window edgeThe Home, End, PgUP, and PgDn keys move a window to the corresponding corner of the screen without resizing the window. I like to think of these as the ocorner keyso. If you think about it, the number-pad makes an easy template for remembering how to size and move windows. The arrow keys size windows, and the corner keys (7,9,1,3) move windows to the corner of the screen.The oPluso and oMinuso keys on the number-pad will resize the window to a specific dimension. The dimensions used are:640 x 480800 x 6001024 x 7681152 x 8641280 x 1024This is handy for seeing how your artwork will fit on standard size screens.The o5o key on the number-pad centerThe o5o key on the number-pad centers the window on the screen without resizing it. The number-pad oEntero key will maximize the window when it is normal size and vice-versa. The o0o key will minimizes the window.When multiple monitors are detected, FreeSnap remaps the "5" key to move the window from one monitor to the next.FreeSnap has a undo as well. If you repeat the last command, it will undo that command.FreeSnap has an alternate set of keys that are more suitable for laptop users. The keys are:Windows Key + I snap top window edgem window edgeWindows Key + J snap left window edgeWindows Key + L snap right window edgeWindows Key + T move window to top-left cornerWindows Key + G move window to bottom-left cornerWindows Key + Y move window to top-right cornerWindows Key + H move window to bottom-Windows Key + H move window to bottom-right cornerWindows Key + C center windowWindows Key + Z grow windowdowAgain, the key layout corresponds to the window edge and movement. The IKJL keys form a T much like the cursor arrow keys. The TGYH keys form a oblocko where each corner corresponds to the window movement.Running FreeSnapYou can start and stop FreeSnap by using the menu items. The only indication that FreeSnap has started is the brief banner that appears when you start it. There is no tray icon (heck, you probably have about 20 of those if youlre like me). The installation automatically places a shortcut to FreeSnap in the Startup folder. You can delete the shortcut if you donlt want FreeSnap to start automatically.Command Line OptionsIf you donlt like the banner, you can add a o-nobannero command line option to the shortcut to suppress itls display.The o-noalternatekeyso option will suppress the alternate set of keys added for laptop usersThe o-stopo option will stop FreeSnap.Requirements * Windows 2000 or Windows XP or Windows Vista * A keyboard with the oWindowso key
