- Windows Management.
By now, you’ve probably seen that Windows 7 does a lot to make
window management easier: you can “dock” a window to the left or right half of
the screen by simply dragging it to the edge; similarly, you can drag the window
to the top of the screen to maximize it, and double-click the window top /
bottom border to maximize it vertically with the same horizontal width. What you
might not know is that all these actions are also available with keyboard
This side-by-side docking feature is particularly invaluable on widescreen
monitors – it makes the old Windows way of shift-clicking on two items in the
taskbar and then using the context menu to arrange them feel really
- Win+Left Arrow and Win+Right Arrow dock;
- Win+Up Arrow and Win+Down Arrow maximizes
and restores / minimizes;
- Win+Shift+Up Arrow and Win+Shift+Down Arrow
maximizes and restores the vertical size.
