In windows 7, I really liked an opportunity to change the position of the windows by pressing hotkeys Win + (Left | Right | Up | Bottom):

  • Win & Left - window attached to the left side
  • Win & Right - window attached to the right side
  • Win & Up - window is maximized
  • Win & Bottom - window in the normal state.

Make this work with Windows Vista (most likely will work in earlier versions, but I have not tried it) was not a difficult task.

working with WinXP (x64, x86), Vista (x64, x86) with installed Framework (compiled with MS Framework v.3.5 sp1)
