Filed under: Windows — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:50 am

Managing windows on an ultra wide monitor can be tedious task, an ultra wide full screen window is odious and useless, that’s why I have been using divvy from mizage to compartment my desktop for several years now, but yesterday I checked my windows startup list and saw that divvy has a “High” startup impact and I thought it is an easy program so lets rewrite it for fun, so I started to write it in C# and actually it was 80% done and I just needed the coordinates and the size of my preconfigured windows in divvy, so I went on a search spree to find a program to get the info that I need easily I found out something much better! an unknown free divvy alternative called Sizer from So I abandoned my program and started using Sizer.
Unfortunately the domain is expired right now and I managed to get the app from another source, but in order to keep this useful tool online and accessible, I wrote this post and will upload the latest file here, just in case 😉

Excellent window manager for Windows/Mac OS X

About 1 year ago I bought a 34″ LG ultra wide monitor (21:9). Ultra wide monitors are usually used as a replacement of multiple monitors and thus using a window manager is mandatory with them.
For the past year I was using LG’s crappy “Split Screen” software which comes with monitor until recently I found this great window manager called Divvy. It saved me from all issues I had with “Split Screen” and provides more features and flexibility, so I thought it is necessary to give them a shout-out.
If you are in need of a good window manager don’t hesitate to use Divvy and possibly support them by buying its license. It is worth every penny.
