WinSplit Revolution: Tile, resize, and position windows for efficient use of your screen

ecran [1]Ever working on a project and wished you could place two windows side by side to make it easier for you to do whatever you were doing? I know I have. Well, you know as they – be careful what you wish for… you might just get it!

WinSplit Revolution allows users to easily tile, resize, and position windows so they all fit together like blocks. Not only does this allow full use of all available screen space, but it also assists in multitasking.

The great thing about WinSplit Revolution is it does not literally “split” your screen which would involve creating and displaying different desktops for each “screen”; rather WinSplit allows you to resize windows and organize them in a fashion which is useful to you. Therefore, WinSplit is very light on computer resources.

WinSplit works in two ways – via the floating, semitransparent button panel…

…and via hotkeys:

(Take note that some features of WinSplit Revolution, such as Mosaic – which automatically positions all windows open to maximize full usage of your screen – are only available via hotkeys.)

Whenever you want to resize and tile a window, either click on the appropriate button the panel or press the appropriate hotkey while the window is active and the window will be resized and tiled accordingly. WinSplit gives users the ability to customize the default resizing and tiling settings:

Keep in mind all these options I just mentioned are accessible via the WinSplit Revolution system tray icon.

If you prefer being able to drag + resize/tile windows as opposed to using hotkeys or the panel, WinSplit Revolution allows for that too:

Pretty handy, huh? To make it even better, WinSplit Revolution can be installed or be made portable (you select which one you want as one of the first steps after you run the EXE you download):
