Better window size controls for OS X

SizeWell LogoOne 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:

  • Standard Zoom
  • Whole Screen (??0)
  • Half Screen
    • Left Half (??1)
    • Right Half (??2)
    • Top Half (??3)
    • Bottom Half (??4)
  • Quarter Screen
    • Top Left Quarter (??5)
    • Top Right Quarter (??6)
    • Bottom Left Quarter (??7)
    • Bottom Right Quarter (??8)
  • Resolutions
    • Includes 13 of the most popular screen resolutions.
  • Position
    • Center (??9)
    • Also includes all edges and corners.
  • Screens
    • 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.
