TweakWindow

Download Trial Version

Even though TweakWindow has many analogs currently available for download on the Internet, no other window enhancement utility comes close to TweakWindow in terms of usability and number of features offered.

In addition to standard features, like hiding a window or making it topmost or transparent, TweakWidnow offers unique capabilities, like an option to change window icon or title so that no one can just come over and see what program you are running. One-click window minimization to the system tray is a great option for software applications that are automatically launched upon startup (like MS Outlook) but aren’t currently used.

To maximize a window, simply click the application icon in the system tray. Another popular option not available in many window enhancement tools is a rollup feature that rolls the window up or down, leaving visible only its titlebar. Window ghosting is a feature that makes a window topmost and semi-transparent (users can adjust the transparency level themselves). All clicks will go through that window to the one located beneath, but the ghost window can still be closed, minimized, maximized and resized. Only ghost window title bar reacts to the mouse clicks. This is a great feature when you are running an application that you don’t want others to see, but don’t like hiding it entirely and need to be able access it immediately, when necessary.

All these window manipulations can be done easily one of three ways. First, you can use the buttons that the program adds to windows (this option can be turned on or off). Second, you can manipulate the windows through the window system menu. Finally, you can assign your own hotkeys that will trigger an action by simply pressing a combination of keys.

The program is extremely easy to download, set up and use. It requires absolutely no special skills or knowledge. And since TweakWindow is 100% FREE to download and try, you can start using it right now!

Here are some key features of “TweakWindow”:

· Window enhancement:

· – Transparent window. Through a transparent window, you can see the contents of the window that is below the one you are currently working with. With the “Transparent window” feature, you will save a lot of time you would otherwise spend on switching between windows. More info…

· – Window always on top. You can make a window stay always on top and this window will be displayed above all other windows, when you are working with them. This will allow you to see the results in the work of a program even if you are currently working with another application that occupies the entire screen. If you want it, the window can be made transparent whenever you make it topmost. More info…

· – Rollup window. Do you want to see a window on the screen so that it occupies as little space as possible? Use the Rollup window feature for minimizing the size of the window to the size of its title bar. More info…

· – Ghost window . If you want to see the window on top, but it is large in size and you have to work with a window below it – make it a Ghost! A Ghost window stays on top of other windows, can be transparent and let mouse clicks THROUGH to a window below! More info…

· – Minimizing a window into the system tray . A lot of programs (such as Microsoft Outlook Express, Windows Media Player and others) have no built-in feature for minimizing into the tray. These programs must be running all the time while you are working with the computer, but you use them only occasionally. Other programs may be used only infrequently, etc. All those programs occupy space on the taskbar and make it difficult to navigate between windows. More info… For example – Minimize Microsoft Outlook Express into an icon in the system tray.

· Privacy protection:

· – Hide window. Are you afraid to start some programs because someone may see you using them? Do you close programs and documents when you leave the computer because someone may see your confidential information or steal your ideas? Now you don’t have to close all windows, when you leave the room – just hide them. Now you don’t have to close a game or your browser when someone comes up to you – just hide them.

· – Chameleon feature. Do you avoid using the Autohide feature of the taskbar and all active programs are visible on your taskbar (that is, their icons and titles)? Do your colleagues look over your shoulder and tell your boss every time they see you surfing the Internet or playing games? Does your network administrator use some spyware to detect if there is any forbidden software running? With TweakWindow, you can change the title and the icon of any window. More info…

· – Quickly minimizing into the tray / hiding a window without using the keyboard or moving the mouse . Do you need to quickly hide the window when somebody is coming up to your display? TweakWindow helps you solve these problems. More info…

· MS Windows system enhancement:

· – Moving a window by clicking and holding not its title bar, but any place on the window. Do you need to move a window when the pointer is far from its title bar? Do you have to get the pointer back to its previous position after you move a window? Are you disappointed at the fact that Microsoft has not implemented such a feature? Your problems are solved with TweakWindow!

· – Enhancing the “Move pointer to the default button in dialog boxes” system feature. Do you make use the useful “Move pointer to the default button in dialog boxes” system feature, but find it does not work in many of your applications? You do not know how to solve this problem, do you? We do! Use TweakWindow. More info…

· Miscellaneous:

· – The invisible mode for protecting your privacy; restoring all windows that are hidden and minimized into the tray with one click; selecting TweakWindow buttons displayed on the title bars of windows; moving the title bar buttons for compatibility with other applications; integration with the system menus of windows and other features.
