One of the most common ‘complaints’ and comments from ex Windows users on the OS X operating system, is the inability to be able to click a button and expand the current window into a ‘maximised’ state. Although I’ve never really understood it myself, it has sort of grown on me. It certainly makes multi-tasking easier in OS X.
However, if you’d prefer to have these controls returned then this application is for you. SizeWell is a plugin with a tiny footprint, which uses a collection of modifier keys to add more control over your applications windows. Not only can it aid with resizing windows, but it also has powerful zoom controls too.
Here’s a list of modifier keys you can use with the application:
- Left Half (??1)
- Right Half (??2)
- Top Half (??3)
- Bottom Half (??4)
- Top Left Quarter (??5)
- Top Right Quarter (??6)
- Bottom Left Quarter (??7)
- Bottom Right Quarter (??8)
- Includes 13 of the most popular screen resolutions.
- Center (??9)
- Also includes all edges and corners.
- Next Screen (??=)
- Previous Screen (??-)
However, if you’d prefer to set your own modifier keys…then you’re in luck!
SizeWell is still in it’s infancy currently, and you can download a beta version from here.
