What do Windows users have to do in order to move or resize their open application windows? The answer, in case of moving a window, is that first you restore the window (if it is maximized) and then you move it to its destination by dragging its title bar. In the case of resizing a window, you can simply restore the window and un-maximize it, but for more precision you will need to resize by dragging the corners or sides of the window.
This behavior is now improved for Windows users through an application called Win-X-Move.
Win-X-Move is a piece of freeware that comes as a portable desktop application for computers running the Windows operating system. The app comes in a tiny ZIP archive sized at nearly 0.1 KB. Once you download the archive and uninstall it, you only need to run the extracted executable file – installation is not required. You will find the application running through a newly placed icon in the System Tray. Right clicking on this icon lets you activate it (it is already activated by default) or quit it.
With the app running, you can move windows simply by left clicking anywhere within them while holding down the Alt key on your keyboard. To resize windows, you hold down the Alt and Ctrl key while right clicking anywhere in the window and moving the mouse pointer in the direction you want the window to be resized.
