Use NumPad Keys To Position Application Windows With WinNumpad Positioner

We have previously reviewed TicClick – a Windows AeroSnap supported application which lets user easily adjust active application windows to different sides of the screen, it offers 9 positions in total with a small on-screen position adjuster to select the position of the window. Nonetheless, the only downside of TicClick is that it doesn’t offer hotkey combinations for adjusting windows, therefore users have to bring up its adjuster and then select the position. WinNumpad Positioner offers what TicClick doesn’t – simple hotkey combinations to adjust windows quickly. As it name implies, it enables user to dock window at any side through Numpad keys combinations. All the Numpad keys are mapped with the screen positions. You can for instance press Win + 5 to bring active window to center of the screen, using 7 instead 5 will dock the window at upper-left corner. Read More
