At times, it becomes difficult to move, resize, drag and manage several separate open windows at the same time – or move parts of them off the screen. AltDrag attempts to resolve this issue. It is an on-screen window resizing application, simple and light in weight that allows a user to drag windows from point-to-point by holding down the Alt key.
The newly released version of AltDrag has a graphical user interface that lets you configure settings to meet your preferences and includes Chinese language support too.
One can resize a particular window by simply using the right-mouse button, or maximize it to view the details more clearly by using the double-click option. To snap (attach) a window to its nearby windows simply hold/use the ‘Shift’ key.
New features added:
- Added Graphical User Interface configuration

- Added ability to blacklist by process name

AltDrag, by consuming very little resources, allows you to move and resize windows quickly in a much easier way and with less mouse movements.
